Great advice for dealing with those late-season tomatoes


Elaine Corn just filed a really good piece at on what to do if you're lucky enough to be saddled with too many cherry tomatoes. The award-winning cookbook author, public radio reporter and gardener must not live close enough to me, since I haven't tasted a single one of those incredible little Sweet 100s she's writing about (that's her photo above). Nevertheless, I am including her story and recipes here for your edification. With this cold, rainy weather we're having, it'll be more fun to be in the kitchen than out in the garden.

Corn insists she'll be picking her cherry tomatoes until Thanksgiving. I'm assuming she doesn't mean Canadian Thanksgiving, which means I'll have plenty of time to improve my schmoozing (posting a link to her story is a start!) and maybe get my hands on a few of those Sweet 100s. I'm eager to make that sauce and those cherry tomato "raisins" myself.
