It's Tomato Time!


It's the height of tomato season and for us tomato lovers, that means it's time to make all of our favorite tomato products!  Although many of our tomato plants here at the Circle B Kitchen have been decimated by all the rain we've been getting this summer, we're still picking romas and San Marzanos, and today I'm making as many jars as I can of one of my very tomato things... tomato jam.  I'm also making tomato paste because homemade tomato paste is the bomb. Whether you've got tomatoes coming out of your garden, or the farmer's market, or you're stealing them from your neighbors, I thought I'd share some of my favorite tomato recipes with you so you can get to cookin' too.  Just click on a photo for the recipe.  Happy cooking!!
