Can cherry tomatoes be canned like other tomatoes?

Rating: 83

Cherry tomatoes may be canned just like any other tomatoes. Since peeling them may be a tedious task, using them for juice may be the best use for them. If they are canned unpeeled, the peeling will probably separate during canning and give a less than desirable product.
