So, you've taken our Tomato Varieties and Canning Quiz, and we hope you've enjoyed it! The world of canning tomatoes is filled with diverse varieties, each with its unique characteristics and flavors. From Roma tomatoes, perfect for sauces and pastes, to the vibrant Beefsteak tomatoes, there's a variety for every recipe. But the learning doesn't stop here. Let's delve deeper into the art of canning tomatoes and how to make the most of this versatile fruit.

Firstly, it's important to understand that the type of tomato you choose can significantly impact your canning results. Just as you discovered in our quiz, the variety of tomato affects the taste and texture of your canned goods.

Perhaps you're considering growing your own tomatoes for canning? If so, our friends at Plant Handy have an excellent guide on growing tomatoes in vertical gardens.

Now, let's talk about the canning process itself. Canning tomatoes is a fantastic way to preserve their fresh, tangy flavor for months to come. If you're new to canning or need a refresher, our step-by-step guide on canning cherry tomatoes is a great place to start.
