It’s that time of year again, and we are busy over here processing tomatoes. The ones above were the first in from our garden. Now they are coming thick and fast. Below are our favorite recipes for utilizing these beauties.
We make and freeze lots of both the Slow Roasted Tomatoes and the Roasted Tomato Sauce for use all year, and we quarter and freeze fresh tomatoes in three pound amounts in ziplock bags ready to make that fresh Tomato Soup all year too. (There is nothing like zings of fabulous heirloom tomato flavor all winter long!) Meanwhile, we love eating Tomato Tarts fresh off the vine, and with the green tomatoes left at the last freeze each year, my husband makes his family’s Green Tomato Relish (otherwise known as Chow Chow).
So whether you grew some tomatoes, or are just inspired to get some from your local farmer’s market, give these favorites recipes of ours a try:
Enjoy these beauties of nature and celebrate the season with these delicious recipes!
