One could easily make an argument that the most anticipated day of summer is when tomatoes ripen on the vine. We wait and wait for that day we pick the first tomato off the plant, and when we bite into it, nothing could possibly taste better. Soon enough, though, all the tomatoes seem to ripen at once, and there is not one single spot left in the kitchen to store them. Don’t let one single tomato go to waste, but instead, experiment with some new recipes while improving upon family favorites. Have you ever made Tomato Marmalade? Try this flavorful spread full of citrus and spices on your next sandwich or burger. Put fresh corn to use as well and make Corn Fritters With Tomato Salsa. Keep some of the salsa aside to use right away, and preserve the rest. Open up a jar in the middle of winter for a summertime treat. Sweet or spicy, simple or complex, there’s a tomato recipe for everyone.

I think it's fantastic that you are giving us tomato recipes, beause it's true that by the end of season, there is not a spare inch that doesn't hold a tomato for some type of processing.New recipes are most welcome!
