The Problem With Tomatoes…

…Is what to do with all of them. You’ve probably been harvesting since mid-July and are getting tired of figuring out what to do with them.

Since you’ve probably got another month or so of tomato harvesting to come, here’s an idea, Cocktail Sauce. You know, what you dipped those shrimp in at the last wedding you attended. I found a recipe online and have modified it so it’s pretty zippy and quite good. Here it is.

I’ve set up the recipe with the intention that it be canned. However, if you don’t know how to can, the sauce could be frozen just as easily. If you freeze the sauce, don’t freeze it in glass as the jar could shatter as the sauce freezes.

I’ve also been experimenting with making tomato leathers (like those fruit rollups you had as a kid). I’ll let you know how they come out as I make them.

If you want to learn to can and preserve your harvest in other ways, I have a Food Preservation class coming up in October.

Hope to see you there.
