a little time consuming but i remove the covering of the individual cloves and there will be a green sprout growing in the center.  Next i take a sharp small knife and slit the clove cutting the green sprout in half - open the split clove and remove any of the green sprout    and save the remainder in a zip lock bag or small dish.

After all cloves have been examined and the sprouts remove - i chop the cloves using a small chopper - mine is about a one cup Rival chopper and its so handy and easy to use.  Place the chopped garlic pieces in a pint or quart jar - and cover  with olive oil - over with a canning lid and place a securing ring to the jar.. 

Next i place the container in the refrigerator and use when ever garlic is sought in a recipe - the head cook in this house loves how easy it is to use when needed....

<![CDATA[Good tomato for canning]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/679/good-tomato-for-canning I have never canned tomatoes before so I am looking for advice. Which tomato variety would be the best for canning, one that produces early and a lot. In Montana I have a short growing season and really don't want to have to pick green tomatoes to bring in the house to ripen.   Thanks ahead of time.
