Are you someone who likes to add food scraps to a compost pile? This is a great way to reuse food that would otherwise be thrown in the trash. Something that is perfect for a compost pile is the skins from a tomato. However, you can also use these skins to make tomato salt.

Making tomato salt is not a difficult process. The most important part is drying all the skins so you will be able to convert them into a powder. This process requires the use of your oven. You may also use the heat from the sun to dry your tomato skins.

A coffee grinder or a spice mill will then be needed to grind the dried skins into a powder. This powder is what is used to create your tomato salt. The entire process takes about 3 hours for a small batch. You might need to wait longer if you are sun drying your skins.
