The summer growing season is upon us. Home gardeners around the country are filling their garden beds with tomato plants to complement their summer menus. Pretty little specimens pop up in salad sand sandwiches, but what about those that are not quite as visually appealing? We have even bigger plans for them.
A good tomato crop can mean far more tomatoes than you can possibly eat. If you plan properly, though, you can enjoy the flavor long into the winter months. Use your bumper crop of tomatoes to make these simple recipes that can be canned or frozen for later use.
Side note: All of these recipes specify Roma tomatoes. While it is not necessary to use that variety, they often have a higher ‘meat’ to seed ratio. If you use another variety, you may wish to add a little to compensate for the difference.
