Since I don’t have a garden this year (it was too late in the year to plant anything at the new house), there aren’t going to be any normal-scale canning sessions at my house. So I started investigating small batch canning and found Food In Jars. I’ve already done Marisa’s Pickled Garlic (via a guest post at Serious Eats) and Dilly Beans, and I have the Nook* version of her new cookbook, Preserving in Pints. With some extra tomatoes laying around, I decided to go through her book to see what I could do with them in a small batch format. Voila… Pizza Sauce!
If you’re an experienced canner or just looking to dip your toes in the water of preserving, you really need to subscribe to Food in Jars and buy Marisa’s book. She’s an excellent resource for those of us who don’t always have 20 pounds of tomatoes on hand.
*These days, I buy Nook books instead of paper but I think I am going to have to go buy the paper version because sometimes it’s just so much easier to cook with a real book instead of a tablet.
