Yellow Tomatoes

I swear I am not cooking one more tomato this season! So much abundance this year! I’ve resorted to pureeing, cooking and freezing the last of the yellow tomatoes. They aren’t good candidates for canning because of low acidity, unless you pressure can them.

We grew three varieties of yellow tomatoes this year, the largest Mr. Stripey which will turn a deep beautiful orange, Garden Peach which is about as yellow as it gets and isis candy, a cherry tomato that varies from a golden yellow to burnt orange.

What to do with yellow tomato sauce? Use it for rice and vegetable dishes. Add potatoes, especially the golden varieties. Adding red chili powders for Mexican dishes will give you a beautiful rusty orange color. I have used it for pasta sauce and it is delightfully tasty. I did not find the color off putting but I can imagine some might. Saffron is a great spice to use with the yellows.

Whatever you do, explore food varieties and tastes. Happy cooking!

bon appetite!
