Got tomatoes? Here's a rundown of ways to put up your maters, from basic canned tomatoes to salsa, ketchup and more.

Take that, Heinz! Make your own tomato ketchup (or catsup, if you prefer) that's tangy, sweet and wholesome. Git yo' ketchup on.
Perk up your pasta with homemade tomato sauce made from garden-fresh tomatoes, and put it up for use throughout the year.
4. ¡TOMATO SALSA!
Even if you're in New York City, you can whip up a zingy, spicy salsa that will keep your chips dipping all year long. ¡Vamanos!
5. TOMATO JAM
Treat your tomatoes like the fruit they are. Tomato jam is sweet, savory, tangy and amazingly versatile. Use it like ketchup, pair it with cheese or just have a dollop on your dinner plate to spark up your meats and mains. Jam on! (Image via Garden of Eating.)
