Tomatoes are in season! I’ve mentioned several times that we’ve got more than we know what to do with in our garden.
I never liked tomatoes as a kid but as I grew up, I learned that tomatoes play an important role in many food dishes so I learned to cook with them. It wasn’t until a few years ago – when I started gardening and growing my own tomatoes, that I grew an appreciation for different varieties of tomatoes, and it wasn’t until then that I started to enjoy eating tomatoes raw. Now, I actually catch myself in the garden popping little tomatoes in my mouth as I pick them off the vine. There is nothing quite like a vine-ripened, organic, home-grown tomato.
Many of the recipes you see on my blog feature tomatoes as one of the ingredients, below I share six of those recipes hoping to inspire you to use some juicy red tomatoes in to your recipes.
