Subject: RE: BS: Recipes - what are we eating?
The tomato plants in my yard are large but producing zero, so I bought some "vine ripe" tomatoes a while back. Didn't get around to using them all for slicing, so now they're simmering for sauce. And I realize this is a summer smell I've missed - cooking tomatoes as I prepare for canning.

The grapes across the road survived the clear-cut by bulldozer, but they're still not ripe. It's a late year for them, mostly because of the overcast and extra rain. They're usually ready around the Fourth of July. I make mustang grape jelly, and the house smells wonderful with the steam juicer perking away.
