What To Do With All That Fresh Harvest

It’s almost time to pull up my garden and give the soil some rest and rejuvenation until spring. If your garden was a successful as mine was this year, you may be wondering just how in the world you’re going to use up all those beautiful veggies before the first frost arrives? Try fermenting, dehydrating and making fabulous freezable sauces and soups for EASY pull out meals!

I’ve got tons of tomatoes popping up; Roma, heirlooms, cherries, and classic beefsteaks. We’ll have enough tomato soup, spicy salsas, and marinara sauce to last all winter long… My mama taught this Italian girl well!

Here’s one delicious way to use some of those tomatoes. It is my twist on a classic tomato soup…enjoy!
