More tomatoes this week!  I’ve included several recipes below that are a great way to preserve your tomatoes for later in the season.  This is the time of year what you should be “putting away” the harvest.  he counters in our farmhouse kitchen are piled high with beautiful produce waiting to be canned, jarred, roasted and frozen for the fall and winter. 
Coming next week….winter squash!
