Roasted Tomato Pesto

Yummy Roasted Tomato Pesto! So rich and incredibly delicious! This is another fantastic way to use up all those tomatoes over the growing season.

Roasted Tomato Soup

Recently I received over two bushels of tomatoes from my aunt’s garden. I took a stab at canning and dwindled down the lot by over half with tomato sauce alone.
