Just picked

  • from the Garden:

  • What to make?

    Roasted Tomatoes, I gather the Roma tomatoes cut off the tops and place in a pan(top side down) to roast in the oven. After they start to Blacken turn off oven and let cool. Then you can take the skins right off. I put in freezer bags for winter stews, and soups.

    Another thing that I love to do in to make Salsa. This is the recipe that I used:


    • 3 tablespoons finely chopped onion
    • 2 small cloves garlic, minced
    • 3 large ripe tomatoes, peeled and seeds removed, chopped
    • 2 green Chile peppers, finely chopped
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons cilantro, chopped fine
  • 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons lime juice or lemon
  • salt and pepper
  • Preparation:
  • Combine onions and garlic with chopped tomatoes, peppers, cilantro, lime juice,salt, and pepper. Refrigerate for 2 to 4 hours to blend flavors.
  • Makes about 2 cups of salsa.

  • I also take the cherry, and pear tomatoes and half drizzle on Olive Oil , add Mozzarella balls, Squeeze lemon juice, sprinkle with Basil and salt and pepper. Serve on a bed of lettuce or just eat. What do you do with your tomatoes?
