2.  Starting at the tail and using the back of the blade of a paring knife, gently scrape the skin toward the head to remove the scales. Use scissors or a knife to remove the fins. Cut each fish into halves. Rinse the fish well, making sure the belly is clean. Pat dry and set aside.

3. Starting at the point where the tail meets the body, cut the belly open with your paring knife, scrape out the entrails with your finger, and discard them. Rinse the belly cavity clean and then pat the fish dry using paper towels.

6. Heat 2 tsp oil over medium heat in a low saucepan. Brush pan surface with thick ginger slices. When the oil have some white smoke slightly rising up, that means the pan is hot enough for pan-fried. Place in fishes, splash with white wine, turn the fish over when it is golden in colour .

7. Place sardine in canning jar, try not the break the fish.

8. Pour in homemade cherry tomato ketchup and oil to about 80% full, leaving the appropriate amount of headspace. You can add more oil if ketchup is not enough. Using a damp clean cloth or paper towel, clean jar rims and threads. Center lids on jars so the sealing compound is in contact with the rims. Screw bands down just to fingertip-tightness. Do not over-tighten.

9. Once all the jars have lids and rings, lower them into your canning pot. Make sure the jars are 3/4 submerged in cold water.

10. Bring it to a boil, cover with canner lid. Turn to low heat and simmer for 30 mins. Add more hot water during the process to make sure that the jars are 3/4 submerged in the boiling water.

11. When time is up, turn off the heat. Remove canner cover, and let jars stand in the water for 5 minutes. Using the canning jar tongs, remove the jars to a rack or heavy towel to cool. Do not tilt, turn, or dry, and do not disturb the lids. Once the jars are cool enough to handle, remove the rings and test the seals by holding onto the edges of the lids and lifting up an inch or two. If the lids hold fast, the seals are good. Any jars which fail the sealing process should be consume within a few days or reprocess again.  All the canned sardine should be stored in fridge. Heat throughly before serving.

      番茄不攪拌
      即使加入櫻桃番茄醬
      封瓶消毒
      番茄本身水份多
      保存時間和一般料理差不多
