Tomatoes in October

Tomatoes in October

As long as the night-time temperatures don’t dip too low and the autumn rains stay light, October is an excellent time for heirloom tomatoes. Local farmers still pick plenty of them throughout our Indian Summer and we stay busy in the kitchen jarring them whole and “putting up” sauce for the winter. We also continue to feature them on our menus in creative ways. The following are three of our favorite examples of the latter in 2014.
