How to preserve Sungold tomato puree?

This year I want to run Sungold tomatoes through the food mill. Then can them preserving both the color and the flavor for later use. Is there a safe way to do this using the hot water bath method?

Just follow the standard instructions for tomato sauce/puree. There's no difference, except of course there will be more waste as they're more seedy and have less pulp.

Thank you Carol. Just checking to make sure. Will they also keep their color or do I need to add something else too?

We have had members can yellow tomatoes of various varieties. I cannot remember any complaints regarding the results.

Generally they do retain their color. If in doubt, do a small test batch of a jar or two and see how you like the results.

If you want to insure color retention just add some ascorbic acid to them - Fruit Fresh. Or a bit of lemon juice. I don't think it is needed but it sure won't hurt.

Thanks everyone. Last year was my first year canning and I purchased one pound of ascorbic acid and two lbs of citric acid. I will try canning both with and without the ascorbic acid and see how it turns out.
