Canned Tomatoes in Glass Jars

This post may contain affiliate links, including those from Amazon.com. Your price won't change but it supports our family business here and keeps free content flowing. Thanks!

A note for all those trying to avoid BPA in tomato cans, especially after this post:

  • Watch Tropical Traditions for occasional free shipping deals, and get:
  • 7 oz. organic tomato paste in glass jars = $1.99 each.
  • 24 oz. organic strained tomatoes in glass jars = $2.79 each.
  • Must order $16 worth to get free shipping. (4 jars each will do it)
  • Definitely close eyes to cost when same items are <$1 for a can at regular supermarket.

Don’t get stressed out about BPA in cans, now — remember that God is in charge, and leaving the earth to be in the Presence of Love Himself in a perfect place forever is not supposed to be all that scary, and neither are canned tomatoes.

These things are pricey, even with free shipping.  :(

10 Bites of Conversation So Far

  1. says

    Last summer, I bought a huge box of organic tomatoes and had high hopes of making sauce, but my stove went out in the middle of the process! I quickly blanched and skinned the rest and stuck them in the freezer. What a blessing that has been! I pop a tomato or two into what ever recipe I’m using and it dissolves into a wonderful sauce. Better by far texture wise than diced tomatoes or stewed tomatoes and the flavor is amazing! I’m going to do this on purpose next summer.

    So shall we just poison ourselves now so we can get to that perfect place sooner? So does God work for chemical companies? What a moronic outlook!

    I don’t appreciate being called a moron by a free thinker, to be honest. Let’s just all allow each other the freedom to think as we wish. If BPA doesn’t kill us, something else will, and I try not to be “afraid” for real of anything in this world.

    I agree with you. I think you do the best you can, provide for your family the best you can. But sometimes I can’t give my family the most expensive, nourishing food that is available. I just do the best I can and leave the rest to God. thank you for your posts- invaluable information.

    Wow – what happened to civility and common courtesy? I think we can all agree that Katie is doing us a favor by making us aware of BPA and other alternatives out there for buying tomatoes.

    She’s simply saying that we’re all going to die one day – don’t stress out about tomatoes – do what you can in baby steps and keep learning.

    Thank you, Katie for all the hard work you put into your site. I, for one, appreciate it.
