It’s summertime tomato wonderfulness now but think ahead and can the delicious fruits, because once winter hits your only options are mealy flavorless supermarket tomatoes. I can’t deal.

I am stoked at this weekly deal offered at the Brooklyn Kitchen through October. For $35 you get a 20lb box of canning tomatoes that come from Lancaster, PA or the Fingerlakes region of NY. And they are organic. Order by Tuesday at 5pm for pick-up that Friday.

I am not going to can my tomatoes. Instead, I am going to make big batches of red sauce and freeze it in small containers so we can have fresh pasta all winter. Who am I kidding? It will not last all winter! We will be lucky if it gets to the freezer.

Here is a delicious raw tomato sauce recipe from Paulie Gee.
