I’ve been making tomato powder this week from my garden tomatoes. We’ve had a great season of tomatoes from just two plants! I had hopes of canning some up but, frankly, I’m running out of pantry space. So I decided to use my surplus to make some tomato powder.
Never heard of tomato powder? Tomato powder is made from dehydrated tomatoes ground into a fine powder. It can be used to make all kinds of things by simply adding warm water.
Making Tomato Powder
If you love growing tomatoes then you know how quickly you can have TOO MANY tomatoes! I love canning whole tomatoes, salsa and sauce but it is a lot of work and takes up a lot of space. Making tomato powder is another fabulous way to preserve all that tomato goodness in a lot less space!
And it isn’t just great for home. Your tomato powder will travel well too – think spaghetti on your camping trip!…
