Yield of a bushel of tomatoes

    Canned Tomatoes, Salsa, and Ketchup

    Tomatoes are one of those things that really show the value of a hands-on approach. The best tomatoes are the ones you grow yourself and those you can yourself.

    Since I can’t guarantee that there will be enough ripe tomatoes in my garden on a day when I also have time to can them, I tend to buy those that I want to preserve as ripe tomatoes and use the ones in the garden for recipes featuring green tomatoes…or having them fresh and ripe in a salad, or on a sandwich.


    This year I used the green tomatoes to make Mincemeat, Green Tomato Relish, Zen Tomatoes, and some Green Tomato Pickles. I considered buying two bushels of tomatoes, but in the end, it was enough to have bought one. From this I got the following:

    Canned Tomatoes
    5 x 1 Litre
    2x 3 Cups
    1 x 1 Pint
    2 x 1/2 Pint

    2 x 3 Cup
    9 x 1 Pint
    9 x 1/2 Pint

    Ketchup click here for recipe
    1 x 1 Pint
    14 x 1/2 Pint
    3  x  1/4 Pint

    3 Litres Tomato Sauce
    4 Litres of 3 Bean Chili

    The bonus part here is that the ketchup was made using only the  trimmings from the tomatoes.
