When your tomatoes all ripen at once you need some easy recipes to make your harvest last so that none of your hard work goes to waste. Here are 5 of my favourite recipes to preserve the tomato harvest.
Caprese Salad is a classic combination of tomatoes, basil and buffalo mozzarella. Switch it up using different colours and sizes of tomatoes and try out a balsamic glaze for extra sweetness.
Cherry tomatoes are the star of the show in this simple Tomato and Parsley Salad. Tart and sweet, it’s a great side dish.
Blackcurrants make the best jelly to spread on toast or croissants. It’s easy to make and saves for 6 months in the pantry.
If you have a front step, a balcony, a window ledge or any space to put a pot you can grow food it in. I have been growing food in pots for 10 years because it’s easy, fun and the choice of food to grow is endless.
Padron Peppers are one of my favourite snacks to eat with a beer. These salty, sometimes fiery peppers are ready in minutes and transport me back to the first time I ate them in Barcelona.
Roasting Beetroots allow the beautiful, delicate flavour of this majestic vegetable to shine through. Just add olive oil, salt and sprigs of rosemary to create a perfect side dish.
We always end up growing more tomatoes than we can possibly eat in one summer so in September I pick the last of the crop and make sauces that I can use throughout the year.
Vegetable growing was tough this summer as the weather was even more unpredictable that usual. We had some successes and some straight up failures. Find out which was which.
This potato salad is no meagre side dish, it’s the main event. We had a really good potato haul this year so I’ve been able to make this hearty salad a few times.
