Yes, I have done many versions of BLTs. I have given away many, I have made sauce, I have dehydrated ----

Still I have more.

Some recent tomato concoctions.

What have you done with your tomatoes?

I'm fainting here. Not only are your creations beautiful and inspiring, but those gorgeous tomatoes. We have had ONE great tomato this summer and THAT was from a friend's garden in Indiana. Pooh! No one here is giving any away and the farmer's markets don't have very good ones either. I guess it's the lack of rain in the Spring? Truly lovely, my friend!

Wow, just wow. My tomatoes are sad this year--the heirlooms never did much. I had a few Ananas Noir tomatoes--my favorites. I had lots of Romas and Big Boys (planted those only because my mom insisted) that I canned and froze, but the weather has been so miserably hot and dry that the garden just looks awful.

janeer, can you provide a recipe for the tomato pie?

Here: simple as pie

dcarch: the ice cream sounds very appealing; do you spice it at all?

As a matter of fact I spiced it too much.

I put in too much ginger. I like ginger ice cream, but this is supposed to be tomato ice cream. Still tasted good. :-)

Tomato tart on puff pastry from "Cooks Illustrated", July/August 2003. REALLY, really good, and I was surprised that I could taste the difference between the three types of tomatoes (Beefmaster and Marvel Stripe, from my plants, and a Green Zebra from my CSA). There's a layer of jamon de serrano under the tomatoes.

Quite yum.

Scotty Boy, why so late? Weather, micro climate, late start...? I live in south Florida, so my veg schedual is totally off from most people. Is this the norm for you? I grew up on Long Island, in NY state, and our tomatoes came in around July, iirc. This time of year was for the last of the corn, and the start of the hard squash and pumpkins.

I just started pulling the big tomatoes out of my garden, although I've been getting little ones for more than a month. It was a relatively cool and long spring, so it took the plants some time to really start producing. I made some sauce with about half of the Romas and Amish Pastes that I had, the rest will be done tomorrow afternoon. We had an odd rainy day (it doesn't usually rain all summer) about 2 weeks ago and quite a few of my tomatoes split :hmmm:. I'm not quite sure what to do with all the slicing tomatoes I'm going to be getting, I think I'm going to give quite a few to friends and find some good looking mozzarella for the rest.

If you ate pasta and antipasto, would you still be hungry? ~Author Unknown
