Hi,
I have a question about your commit.
You can cook frozen stuff and then can it successfully? I have some frozen green peppers that I needed for a salsa recipe that I was canning but I would not use them because I was
concerned they would affect my jars sealing. But it would be nice to know that I could use
that stuff if I recooked it.

I also need to can just regular plain tomatoes. Does anyone have a good recipe???

Wow, what a treasure trove of recipes.
Thanks Gemini.
Green tomatoes, nectarine and cheese. What an interesting combo.
Both the salsa recipes are Fresh - which will be great for right now; but I'd also like to can some - so if anyone has a cooked green tomato salsa that would be great too.
Boy I'm hungry just reading these - perhaps its snack time.

Thanks for the website. Found a fried green tomato recipe with buttermilk-lime dressing that I am going to try. Also the green tomato relish looks interesting and I am ready to do some canning.

I do have a solution for a ton of green tomatoes at the end of the season.
I wash them and lay them out on a table (NOT in the Sun) and let them ripen.
We use them just the same as fresh as they taste just like vine ripened.
If a ton ripen all at the same time, I put them in a zip lock bag and freeze them after they ripen to use for stews, soups, etc. If I have any left in the freezer from the last year, I thaw them and cook them with this years canning.

thanks for sharing that website about what to do with green tomatoes! Last year I had so many tomatoes that just didn't ripen in time, so I am assuming this year I will have the same problem but don't want to waste the tomatoes. this will definitely help!

And welcome to the SP team! I have been freezing or drying foods, but this is my first year attempting to can. It intimates me! But I think I am getting the hang of it and so far so good! My confidence keeps growing the more I am doing it and learning about it. I wish I had a friend that was doing it to teach me!

Hi and Welcome ! ! !
As far as your green tomatoe question...here is a link to recipes for them...
#10 is for the green tomato relish.
I would do 1/2 green and 1/2 red. The red are so worth waiting for.

Hello.
I JUST found this forum today.
I'm new to the art and admittedly anxious about learning to can. The freezer has been my first choice for "putting food by".
I canned peaches ONCE with a friend. They were tasty, but I swore my husband to silence. As a young women and a feminist I had several years of ignoring the more feminine arts, and while I was attracted to learning, my motto was "no one may learn that I'm dabbling in these forbidden HOMEMAKERY areas."
I come from a long line of canners (Alberta, Canada) homesteaders and their offspring.
However, now I live in the UK and there are a few items from home I would love to indulge.
Salsa being first amoung them.
Salsa in the UK stinks.
I've grown tomatoes 4 years now and always lost them to the dreaded tomato blight. I've got a huge crop of them this year and SO FAR no blight - do I wait and see if I can get lovely red tomatoes or do I seize them NOW.
Can you make green tomato salsa?
