Canning Bruschetta


For my weekly canning post I’m changing it up a bit this week.Bruschetta in a Jar

Up until now, I have mainly done jams and jellies with a couple pickles throw in (and don’t you worry, more of them to come as my pickling cukes are growing fast!)

With some many people’s tomatoes starting to come in, I wanted to share a different way to preserve them besides sauce and regular canned tomatoes.

I made this at the very end of tomato season last year and boy did I wish I had made it earlier. Both my husband and I absolutely LOVE it and we are currently hanging on to the last jar of it for dear life until our current tomatoes are a little closer to being ripe.

We have also served this at every holiday and party since last summer.  Talk about summer in a jar!

With out further ado…. enjoy!

  1. My family loves bruschetta, so I may gave to try this. I am a novice canner, so hopefully all will go well. New follower here. Pinning & checking out your B&B pickles. They remind me of the ones my mom used to make.

    • Hi Scarlett, Thanks for stopping by! With canning, the more you do the more comfortable you get with it. I’m sure you’ll do fine with this recipe and it will be well worth it! :)

  2. My herb garden is overflowing with oregano, basil, parley and rosemary. Can fresh herbs be substituted for the dried herbs in this recipe?

  4. I’m confused…how does 8 cups of diced tomatoes fit into 6 half-pints which hold 1 cup each? Once I packed the tomatoes in (about 8 jars), it only allowed about 1/4 cup of liquid to be added…is that enough for safety?
    thanks for helping this beginner!

    • Hi Linda, When I put the tomatoes into the jars I pack them down a bit and they all fit. Once I add the liquid and remove the air bubbles the liquid seeps down and I have room for a little more to top it off. We’ve never had a problem with the safety of these. Hope that helps!
