I’ve preserved a lot of tomatoes this year but I haven’t preserved a lot of home grown tomatoes. Despite having just over 30 tomato plants this year, we’ve also eaten through a load of them. I’ve eaten so much tomato on toast this month it’s practically a food group.
I have made some tomato sauce and cooked with them but I really wanted to make salsa, the thing is that most salsa recipes require quite a lot of tomatoes, it doesn’t seem to be small batch. This pico de gallo makes about 1.5 litres and and it’s really simple to make with the food processor.
Next on the list is green tomato chutney! And a small batch of canned plum tomatoes.
