Canned Tomato Soup
October 07, 2018

If you know about preserving and canning than you know this is NOT not Proper canning procedure for these ingredients. Celery and onions are low acid ingredients. Tomatoes are just barely acidic enough on their own, so to be safe we add lemon juice. When you combine the large amounts of low acid vegetables (3onions & a bunch of celery!) to the tomatoes it changes the acidity enough that you can get very very sick! It might not happen the first time or the twenty third but botulism is nothing to be la-de-da about. It only takes once to kill you!
