Roma Glory!

Another round with the tomatoes!

 35#s of Romas
Dropped half of them into boiling water, then ice water.
Removed the skins . . .

 Put them on the dehydrator overnight.

 . . . and then into the Vitamix!

 Pulverized into powder!

What do ya do with Tomato Powder?

substitute for tomato paste!
make ketchup (without additives)!
Add to homemade salad dressings and dips!
Add to soups/stews for x-tra tomato flavor!
 . . . and many more ideas!

This is what happened to the other half of the box of tomatoes!
Sliced and dehydrated!  Yum!   Rehydrate and use as you would tomatoes!
What wouldn't fit in the jar .... well, tomato candy!  Yum!

So far, between the Romas from the farmers market and
the baskets full of tomatoes from our garden, we have canned:

whole tomatoes
crushed tomatoes
spaghetti sauce
tomato basil sauce (ie pizza sauce)
tomato jam
dehydrated tomatoes
tomato powder
roasted tomatoes

We've made:

margarita pizzas
tomato sandwiches
tomato pie

Farmers Market is tomorrow!
I wonder if I'll be able to resist bringing 
home more tomatoes!!

I will definitely have my radar out for
watermelons and eggs!!
