Even more tomatoes

By Penny Stine

Jan of the awesome garden is also an awesome friend. In anticipation of the frost, she pulled out all of her tomatoes, peppers, tomatillos and everything else that wasn't cold-hardy. She picked the green tomatoes and set them in large containers to ripen in the garage.
Because she has already roasted tons of tiny black cherry tomatoes, she gave me these.


 

Because she has two other containers this size full of equally large green and ripening tomatoes, she gave me these.

 

 

 

 

I remembered a cookbook that I got several years ago but hadn't used. I spent an hour reading recipes and bookmarking the ones I wanted to try as the tomatoes ripened. Sadly, many of the recipes were written with the rest of the summer garden in mind, and called for fresh basil, summer squash or chopped parsley, all of which I had in abundance, until it froze.

Maybe if I use the cookbook this fall, I'll remember to give it a look-see next summer.

I suppose I could can a few more tomatoes, but frankly, I don't want to drag out the canning kettle and spend the better part of another Saturday canning tomatoes.
