If only I could grow and taste all the varieties of this wonderful summer fruit. I keep forgetting tomatoes are a fruit!
I don’t think I have a favorite one yet, but any heirloom variety seems to edge out the others. This pan has only the first batch of many to come in the next couple fo months.
If you find some that are really tasty, buy some extra and freeze them right away. There are a few ways you can ‘put up’ your tomatoes:
- Canning. Whole tomatoes with and without herbs and garlic, tomato sauce
- Freezing. Whole, roasted whole, seasoned or just salted, tomato soup, pasta, spaghetti, and pizza sauce
- Oven drying. Super sweet condensed version of your favorite tomato
These can then be used for homemade catsup and BBQ sauces. You’ll be reveling in your ‘fruits of labour’ all year long.
I roasted these tomatoes with fresh oregano, marjoram, salt and pepper.
