50+ Tasty Tomato Recipes (Plus What to Do with All Those Canned Tomatoes!)

The are lots of reasons we grow our own garden but the primary reason is to have enough tomatoes for canning. There are high levels of BPA in metal-canned tomatoes - higher than any other canned food product. This year my garden is doing even better than last year and I have a LOT of tomatoes (learn my secret about how to plant strong, healthy tomatoes here).
