Zero Waste Recipe // Canned Tomatoes

Hello everybody! I am all about zero waste recipes at the moment, so I hope you will find this useful. Last time my fiance and I went to the Farmer’s Marked we bought a huge batch of tomatoes, 8 kilos actually.  You can get canned tomatoes almost without plastic, but I would like to avoid it, as the inside of these cans contain BPA in the plastic lining, not cool. Why not make my own ‘canned’ tomatoes, well sure, lets to this!

Btw make sure that the jars you use are made to withstand high temperatures, otherwise I am pretty sure you will have a bloody mess on your hands. Heat the oven to about 200 degrees Celsius and when you take the jars out, don’t burn your fingers, close the lid immediately.  Then the tomatoes should be good for several months, therefore we’ll be making another batch or two, so we have enough during Autumn and Winter.
