Not So Thoughtless

Thursday was not so thoughtless for me. I was scheming as to what I would do with my stash of tomatoes. 



Pink, yellow, and red varieties have been growing here at the farmette.  Funny how they all end up ripe at the very same moment.....



Salsa was the plan and so the tomatoes went straight into a hot bath,


then into their icy plunge. 





Skinless on the cutting board, they awaited their fate with the knife. 



A bit of cooking took place. 




And, voila, salsa for the freezer and some ready for the fridge. 





The fact that it tastes good AND is totally edible, (meaning not poisonous), equals a total success in my book.

  9. Yum! We had those two very early tomatoes ripen and then we stopped. Tons and tons of green ones, though, which I am sure will all be ready at once! haha. Salsa is a great idea and we never have trouble using it up!

  18. Your tomatoes are beautiful and I can almost taste the salsa. My boys used to put salsa on vegetables, even broccoli. Anything to get them to eat veggies.
    Everything is better made with homegrown tomatoes. The ones in the store have no taste. My favorite way to eat a fresh tomatoe is with the tomatoe in one hand, salt shaker in the other, leaning over the sink eating it like an apple.

  21. The tomatoes are gorgous! Nothing better that grabbing ingredients for making wonderful snacks from the yard. Your salsa looks amazing, i'm thinking a bag of chips and fresh guac could keep me busy for while :)
