6 Things to Do With End-of-Summer Tomatoes

3 years ago

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

1. CANNING TOMATOES


Canning your own tomatoes is a great way to economize, but first you need to know a few things to do it safely. Learn how to put up your 'maters.

2. TOMATO KETCHUP


Take that, Heinz! Make your own tomato ketchup (or catsup, if you prefer) that's tangy, sweet and wholesome. Git yo' ketchup on.

3. TOMATO SAUCE


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.)

6. TOMATO CHUTNEY


Mango's marvelous, but tomatoes take chutney to a whole new level. Major Grey's got nothing on this condiment.
