Tomatoes are perfect for busy beginners

  • Versatile
  • Easy to divide or multiply the recipe
  • Kid pleasing
  • Meal in a jar

If I had to can ONE recipe for the rest of my life, it would be tomato sauce.

Canned tomato sauce can be dinner in about 5 minutes: Just open a jar of sauce, warm, and pour on top of pasta.

By investing an hour or two to can a batch of tomato sauce now, you can have a dozen or more jars of sauce ready to be transformed into:

  • Tomato soup (just add a little cream!)
  • Pizza sauce
  • bread stick dip
  • Spaghetti sauce
  • Stromboli filling
  • Lasagna
  • Spaghetti squash topping
  • Roasted vegetables like eggplant
  • Stew and crock pot meals
  • Sloppy Joe's
  • and more!

Are you ready to save time and money?

Sure, cans of tomatoes from the grocery store are a little less expensive than the jars, but they are coated with chemicals that you and I would like to avoid, AND they still cost WAY more than homemade jars.

This workshop will teach you how to use pots & pans you already have, which jar sizes are the most versatile & reusable, and how to make the most of your time in front of the stove.

Canning saves time & money.

Here's what it looks like inside an online course!


I started canning when I was pregnant with my first child (some gals paint baby rooms, I made 100 jars of applesauce). I poured over cookbooks, stood sweating in the kitchen, certain that I'd give me, my husband, and my unborn baby food poisoning. I sorted through pots, pans, ladles, funnels, lids, rings and so many jars. I scorched jam, under sugared, over spiced, broke jars, and learned the hard way why you need a specific set of tools. I want you to skip all that worry, uncertainty, and time wasting and jump right to the good part where you get to enjoy nourishing foods months after harvest and know what is in every mouthful.

Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course start and finish?
The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish. You could watch all the video and read the included PDFs in a weekend, or you could watch one video per day over a couple weeks. It was created with the busy beginner in mind.
How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
What if I am unhappy with the course?
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us in the first 30 days and we will give you a full refund.
Will I make myself sick? Is this dangerous?
If you follow the instructions in this course and in any reputable cookbook, you will not. Canning is safe and satisfying because we will only can foods that are high in acid and they will be processed for the prescribed length of time to ensure the internal environment is such that no spoilers can survive. You will exercise caution when handling glass jars and boiling water.
What if I need help?
Great! That's my job; I love helping newbies get started. By enrolling, you will be part of a community of like minded souls who are learning, just like you. You will be able to ask quick questions and share ideas in our Facebook group with your peers and I am happy to offer specific advice as needed. You can totally do this!
I remember my grandma canning ALL. DAY. LONG. How much time does canning take?
Old school canners made huge batches of preserves out of necessity and for efficiency's sake. The recipes I share are smaller quantities, are easy to cut in half or double, and I share tips for using smaller sized jars. I understand not everyone has a garden full of produce waiting to be canned nor the time to can it. For your first batch of jam, I would say to set aside 2 hours from start to finish.
Don't I need a ton of pots and pans to can?
I spend a lot of time going over the equipment you need in the course but the very short answer is you will need 2 large pots, 1 saucepan, and a utensil kit that includes a mandatory jar lifter. You will need glass jars, new lids, and bands. I encourage you to borrow or use what you have with the exception of the jar lifter. You probably don't own one and you definitely need one.
I have heard that you can preserve foods in jars in the oven/dishwasher/other place. Can I?
Nope. The only USDA approved method of home food preservation is in a boiling water bath. One of the many reasons that things are different from our grandmother's era is they newer hybrids of vegetables- tomatoes are a great example- are lower in acid than their counterparts of yesteryear. We will only follow methods that are scientifically proven to be safe.
I have some old mayonnaise jars and pasta sauce jars. Can I just use those instead of canning jars?
No. I'm always looking for ways to economize but you must use jars specifically designed for canning. Use those other jars for flower vases or storing crayons.
Gee, Jenny, how did you learn how to can? What are your qualifications?
Shucks, thanks for asking. I hold no science degree; rather, I have a Master's in English, a teaching credential, 9 years teaching experience in public school, 4 years teaching English at the community college, and I have been canning like a madwoman for the last 5. I have taken several in person workshops on canning, I called upon several experts when learning by trial and error and I'm a devout canning cookbook and blog reader.
I'm really busy. How much time do I need to learn?
I know your pain. You have taken multitasking to a whole other level and haven't really slept since...a long time ago. You are in luck because canning actually is a big time saver. Learning the material in the course can happen a 10 minutes at a time over a couple weeks or you can watch the whole course in a couple hours. Canning a batch of tomato sauce from start to finish would take a newbie about 2.5 hours but the resulting jars of sauce that are actually still considered a vegetable can be used almost instantly months later. I truly believe that canning has cut my supper-making time drastically, improved my meals by miles, and is absolutely worth the up-front time investment.
I don't really cook. Ever. Can I take this course?
Yes! I don't use words like "sauté"- I say "cook on medium high." I explain everything, thoroughly, more than once and I include several PDFs to guide you at the stove. You can absolutely do this!
