Are tomatoes as good as supermarket tomatoes?
Everyone might not agree, but home grown and farmer's market tomatoes are almost always BETTER than supermarket tomatoes as far as texture and taste goes. Nutritionally, they could be about the same, but it depends on how they are grown. If they are grown in nutrient-rich soil, the home grown ones are likely to have better nutrition.

A tomato is botanically a fruit but was defined by the US Congress in the 1800's as a vegetable so that it could be taxed. Their reasoning was that they are used as vegeta…bles for culinary purposes. It is a red fruit with seeds and similar to strawberries and other red fruits with seeds.
They are a vegetable
Wash your tomatoes. Dip them in boiling water for 30 to 60 seconds or until the skins split. Remove them from the boiling water and immediately put them into cold water. Slip …off the skins and remove the cores. Leave whole or cut into halves. Put the tomatoes in a large saucepan and heat to boiling, gently mashing from time to time to create some juice. Boil gently for 5 minutes. Stir to keep them from scorching. Put the tomatoes and juice into clean jars, leaving 1/2-inch headspace. Add 2 tablespoons of lemon juice per quart to acidify. Add 1 teaspoon of salt per quart. Adjust the lids and rings. Process in a boiling water bath for 90 minutes. The water level should be 1-inch above the tops of the jars. Remove from canner, and let sit until they seal.
