October Tomatoes


After getting off to a slow start my tomatoes have been very prolific over the past weeks. Yesterday I picked five pounds which at the moment are in the oven with olive oil, onion and black pepper, slowly reducing down to a delicious tomato sauce.
I think these may be the last of the tomatoes to ripen in the garden, it is October after all, but there will still be a few green ones left to make some chutney. Time to preserve a little bit of late summer goodness before the cold weather starts.

How lovely! I did not get many this year either from the garden or the CSA.

Yea for tomatoes! The sauce sounds lovely and delicious. There's got to be something so rewarding to opening your own summer saved tomatoes in the dead of winter. Can't wait to get to that point too! :)
