Some people feel that Tomatoes are more of a winter preserver rather than early spring, but they are wrong. As of May 16th it is officially National Tomato Week, so we are celebrating with the best way we know how, with preserving!
- Tomato Salsa
Nothing better than enjoying some fresh salsa on your Mexican food, BBQ's and salads this summer. It also works as a great crisp dip at parties for when you have some friends over, I am sure they will appreciate you going that extra mile and making fresh salsa. You can find one of our favourite salsa recipes right here.
- Tomato Jam
Nope, jam doesn't just need to be made from berries. Why not try and make something a little different to the usual preserving session and whip up some Tomato jam. We love to have it as a dip for meat dishes (yup, it basically replaces tomato ketchup for us), it also work's really well with bagels and pate dishes.
- Keep your Cherry Tomatoes in a Jar
You don't necessarily need to make some preserves from the tomatoes. How about keeping them fresh in your fridge for longer by adding them to a big Kilner Jar. Keeping them locked tight in a jar will keep them fresh for longer and leave the taste sweeter.
- Make a salad
It might seem like a really simple concept but it is all the rage at the moment. We see so many people sharing their images of salads in Jam Jars and to be honest it looks great! We think a small salad for your lunches would look great in our 250ml Glass Trento Jar.
If you have any great ideas on how to use Tomatoes, not just for National Tomato Week but all year round, we would love to hear from you on social media. Follow and tweet us at: @.
