My Italian mother-in-law made a potato salad using: potatoes, green beans, and tomatoes. She made a vinegar and oil type dressing that she poured on it when the potatoes were warm. It can be served warm, room temp, or chilled. Its perfect for summer.

I roast tomatoes - Cut in half, put on a parchment covered sheet pan, cut side up. Drizzle lightly with olive oil and sprinkle with a bit of oregano. Roast @ 350 for 1 - 2 hours.

You can adjust seasonings to your liking - add garlic or salt, use other herbs. Skins, if you want to remove, will slip right off after roasting and cooling.

I then package into food saver bags and freeze (freeze before sucking air out - or just use freezer containers). They are so much better than anything canned in the store and we enjoy them throughout the rest of the year in chili, soups, goulash, etc. I have only 1 package left in the freezer from last year.

That sounds good too!

I'm jealous that you all have so many tomatoes right now. My plants are only 8 inches high. We had a cool, dry spring and all of our starts took their time coming up.

No tomatoes here in the Finger Lakes for another month, at least. We don't put them in anymore; there has been a problem with some sort of blight for a few years. Once it is in the soil, it takes ages to go away. We have a lot of farm stands in the area, as well as a couple of you-pick places. I am happy buy them from others who have more consistent success.

Today I made freezer strawberry jam. Another of those things that will be a nice treat when the winter winds blow.

Years ago a friend shared a Tomato Jam recipe using raspberry or strawberry jello. It is really easy and was tasty. I can not find my copy, maybe someone on QB has it.
