T is for Tuesday and Tomato
Joining Bluebeard and Elizabeth today
for "T" Tuesday. Visit her at
Altered Book Lover to see
what everyone else is doing
and join in the fun!
Today I'm freezing a few tomatoes...
They are from my parents' garden.
I think these are Big Boys. But I am not
positive what the type is called. They're
nice and sweet.
I just core them and cut off any bad spots,
then dip them into boiling water so the
skin will peel right off. You can blend
them up to make juice, but I just
cut them in halves or quarters. Pop them into
a quart zip lock freezer bag and they make
wonderful soups over the winter!
Much better flavor than canned...
Today I added cinnamon, cloves,
nutmeg and skim milk to my coffee.
I guess I am craving spicy fall recipes.
Please ignore the snowman on the cup.
I am not craving winter, but I do love
this Debbie Mumm cup!
Here you can see how these
tomatoes often have a deformed shape. They
also seemed to spoil rapidly. Don't know if
that was our weather conditions, or
the type of tomato.
The next project in the kitchen
will be applesauce...
