5. Country Western Ketchup
Maybe it never occurred to you to make your own ketchup — but if you’re preserving tomatoes, now’s the perfect time to try it.
The National Center for Home Food Preservation suggests a recipe for Country Western Ketchup (spiked with cayenne pepper, paprika, allspice, dry mustard, bay leaves, and peppercorns for extra kick) and points novices to the instructions for preserving it using boiling water canning methods. Serve it on organic hamburgers in December for a tasty reminder of your summer barbecues.
