    Default Tomatoes

    So far I have picked about 50 pounds of tomatoes. Today I will can a
    few quarts of Viva Italia. The others we will eat fresh (salads or
    sandwiches) or cooked in some manner. I'm thinking tomato pudding
    tomorrow.

    I made stuffed peppers Saturday. Still have some that I need to get
    frozen. I may also make a few more from the peppers I picked this
    morning.

    My son sent me a picture Saturday of his first tomato sandwich. He
    has done some gardening in other places he has lived but this the
    first from the garden in HIS yard.

    What in the world is tomato pudding? Curious minds and all that.

    Never met a stuffed pepper I didn't like but never made the and froze
    them. How do they hold up from freezing?

    Good for him, see, gardening is catching on with young people again.

    Tomatoes, onion, bread, salt & pepper. Bake until hot through.

    They do very well. Since mine are completely cooked I can put them in
    the freezer as is. I usually put some tomato sauce on them when they
    cook.

    I'm glad to see him gardening and cooking, even making pickles. I
    wonder how many single young men do these things. I did direct him to
    the UGA site for information if he doesn't buy a BBB.

    I would be willing to bet a dollar, if I had one free, that not very
    many young men do the things your son is starting to do. We all need to
    encourage our young people to take up gardening and home food
    preserving. Those are skills that they can use for a lifetime.

    And, if Monsanto, Cargill and Con-Agra get their way, growing and
    preserving your own will be the only reasonably priced, open
    pollinated, non-GMO food available.

    My son has also done some gardening but he's more into the cooking,
    canning, baking of the produce. He bought himself a PC several years
    ago and has done beans and other stuff. His Christmas present about 5
    years ago was a Back to Basics strainer. But then he also does most
    of the care for his 2 girls as well as cooks most of the families
    meals and likes to try to make beer and wine on the side and roasts
    and grinds his own coffee.:-)
