Selecting, Preparing and Canning: Tomatoes with Okra or Zucchini

Quantity: An average of 12 pounds of tomatoes and 4 pounds of okra
or zucchini is needed per canner load of 7 quarts. An average of
7 pounds of tomatoes and 2-1/2 pounds of okra or zucchini is needed
per canner load of 9 pints.

Procedure: Wash tomatoes and okra or zucchini. Dip tomatoes in
boiling water 30 to 60 seconds or until skins split. Then dip in
cold water, slip off skins and remove cores, and quarter. Trim
stems from okra and slice into 1-inch pieces or leave whole. Slice
or cube zucchini if used. Bring tomatoes to a boil and simmer 10
minutes. Add okra or zucchini and boil gently 5 minutes. Add 1
teaspoon of salt for each quart to the jars, if desired. Fill jars

to each jar.
