Can I re-can canned tomatillos? I bought the wrong size can online and it can't be returned.
I inadvertently bought a #10 can of tomatillos. The net weight is 6 pounds, 2 oz (2,8 kg). I can't open it without wasting it. I don't have room in the freezer for 8 to 10 jars of tomatillos. Can I re-can them in smaller portions? I can get pint canning jars and sterilize them, but do I need to reheat or even boil the tomatillos before I pack them in the jars? Will that preserve them as if they were purchased in smaller jars? Help!
