I make and can my own salsa as well as making spaghetti sauce and freezing that. My 16 plants fell victim to blight this year so I'm not getting nearly the output as usual.

DH loves my stuffed tomatoes. I simply cut around the center of the tomato until I can use a melon baller to take out the "insides". I roughly dice it (taking out the core) and then add it to a bowl with some panko bread crumbs, grated parmesean cheese, a small amount of olive oil and laughing cow low fat cheese. I usually use my hands to mush this all together!

I then stuff it all back in the tomato shell & drizzle just a small amount of olive oil on the top. Bake in a 350 to 375 degree oven for about 15 minutes, until brown & bubbly. This almost makes a meal by itself if the tomato is big enough! Enjoy!


P.S. I love checking out the Taste of Home website for ideas, too. Good Luck!

Fried green tomatoes if you still have any green.
DH like tomato sandwiches, just tomato and mayo or fresh bread.

This is the first year I won't have garden tomatoes. I started a new job and didn't have time for a garden this year. BUT. .around this house it is BLT's!!! My kids love them. For breakfast, I like to slice a hard boiled egg, tomato, cucumber and a little mayo on toast or rice cakes. .. yum! Whenever I had too many and couldn't keep up, I would just blanch a big pot off them, rub the skins off, put them in ziploc bags, squish them up a little and freeze them. It was great to pull out in the winter for sauces, soups and chili. HTH

My favorite saying in the summer. When life gives you lemons make lemonade..when life gives you tomatos, make salsa!

Salsa: Tomatoes, Onions, hot peppers (just a little) Lime juice, tons of garlic and a little salt to taste. I vary the proportions based on my mood. A little can tomato paste rounds it out nicely, too sometimes.

I also grow lots of basil to make Bruschetta: Tomatoes, olive oil, garlic and basil.(dash of balsamic vinegar is optional) Serve on bread toasted with olive oil.

Caprese Salad: Sliced fresh tomatoes topped with sea salt, fresh mozzerella, and fresh basil leaves, and drizzled with balsamic vinaigrette. Yum!

Our favorites (some of which have been mentioned here) are: BLTs, Salade Caprese, Ratatouille (which also freezes very well), salsa, stuffed tomatoes (raw stuffed with tuna or crab salad, or baked as described by another poster), tomatoes provencale, and when we can't keep up with eating them all, I make sun-dried tomatoes, or pop them in the freezer whole to use later for soups and stews. I've got the blight too this year, so I won't have many to dry, boo.

Get a package of McCormick Salsa Seasoning and add fresh cilantro. Mix in with tomatoes cut up. Let sit for a few hours. Instant delicious salsa.

Tomatoes, Cucumber and onion salad with balsalmic vinegar, olive oil and Cavender's Greek Seasoning (or salt and pepper)

Bacon and tomato sandwiches with Miracle whip on bread (forget the lettuce) this is heaven!

I know my grocery store sells a dry herb mix to add to tomatoes for salsa. It is pretty good. Seems like it has a woman on the label and is a see through bag.

My favorite but I also add fresh garlic slices to mine and I just drizzle high quality olive oil over it right before serving.

Salsa is so easy to make
you don't need a mix

Chop tomatoes
chop poblanos or whatever pepper you like (jalapeno)
olive oil
cilantro
I like raw onion in mine- so a little of that
LIME!!


There you go - Salsa!

variation- you can add grilled corn and chipolte too!

I love Tomato Cuccumber feta salads.

I am still waiting on my tomatoes- I started from seeds this year and I fear by the time I get tomatoes it'll be snowing.

We had tons of tomatoes too this year and we were out of takers (my mom and I both had gardens). So, we blanched the tomatoes after taking out most of the seeds (DH doesn't like them) and chinking them, removed the peels, added fresh garlic and onion and cooked just a bit, then froze in those little half cup ziploc containers.

When the next batch of tomatoes were getting too ripe, we dumped out the ziploc containers into gallon bags and repeated. Now we have tons of 1/2 cup seasoned tomatoe cubes in the freezer ready for soups, spaghetti, chili, gumbo, etc. (We originally thought about ice cube trays but neither of us had any.)

Most all of mine split because of heavy rain this summer. I wonder if I can still freeze them whole?

These recipes sound wonderful. Can't wait to try them.
I ate a whole one fresh off the vine tonight with supper. It was delicious.

Now, who has recipes for zucchini?
