I grew up in the 60s and I used to watch my grandma and mom can. They canned everything from sausage, fish to dill pickles and beets. Sometimes she would can 75 quarts of green beans. I remember how great they tasted.
I recently canned some catfish tomatoes and thought I would share it with those that can. My grandparents were from Arkansas and this is the recipe my grandma had. They go real well with fish and I love it with BBQ. I hope you like them.
Grandma’s Catfish Tomatoes
1 gallon quartered green tomatoes
1 pint hot peppers cut up
1 pint white vinegar
1 quart quartered onions
3 cups sugar
1/4 cup salt
Bring to a boil or until tomatoes turn light green. Gently stir a couple of times. Once they come to a boil take them off the heat and spoon them into jars and seal. They don’t need a bath. Note: It doesn’t seem like a lot of liquid but as they cook the tomatoes create a lot of liquid. I also recommend you cook in steel not aluminum.
Well thanks for reading my blog. Hope you enjoyed it. Warning: It is spicy. Enjoy!
