Put everything on fire and sterilize the cans with blanks for 10 minutes. Attention: to prevent the bottom of the container from cracking, spread a dishcloth in the pan, and then fill it with water and make cans with blanks.
After sterilization, fill in jars with tomatoes and onions 2 tablespoons vegetable oil. At the same time, if you have unrefined sunflower oil, then you must first calcine it.
Now change the lids to clean, boiled, and tightly close the jars of pickled tomatoes. Turn over the blanks to check the tightness of the lids, and after that leave the tomatoes upside down to cool to room temperature.
