Using Leftover Tomatoes
If you have mounds of tomatoes you have just recently picked from the last of your garden, here is one more idea about what to do with them:
Wash, core and puree the tomatoes in a blender. Add a little lemon juice, onion and celery to taste. This tomato puree makes a great vegetable juice to drink or to cook down and use as spaghetti sauce or pizza sauce, adding extra seasonings.
You can easily freeze tomato puree.
Ketchup lids get so nasty sometimes and are hard to wipe off. Save a lid from an empty bottle of ketchup and run it through the dishwasher. When the lid from the new one gets gooey, replace it with the clean old lid and then run it through the dishwasher so you always have a clean one handy.
