    I never salt my tomatoes when I can them and they are fine. Salt adds flavor but does nothing in regards to preserving them when processed in jars. Not sure about drying but canning them salt just adds flavor.

    Mom Jill is right. No salt necessary. I do add bottled lemon juice. 2 tbs per quart to maintain acidity. Wish I had about a bushel to can! I miss my garden.
