It's Tomato Season!

Many thanks to Demeter, Greek Goddess of the Bountiful Harvest, that we have so far not suffered from the dreaded late blight that is decimating tomato crops ruthlessly throughout the Northeast. Indeed, the wet and relatively cool summer has not been entirely kind to our tomato crop and it looks like the yield this year will be significantly less than last years prolific bounty, but today I am canning my first batch of tomato sauce out of the leftover cherry tomatoes from Saturday's market. That is, the leftover cherries and the freaks no one would buy!
