What to do with all of these tomatoes?!? We have a great choice for you this week, especially if you receive the cheese share.
This week Abendessen Bread is offering a par-baked pizza crust for $5 a crust. Their pizza crust can be combined with Hillacres Pride Ricotta or Shredded Savory Herb Blend that "is excellent on a pizza - it melts well and compliments the flavors" (from cheese share info). If you do not receive the cheese share don't worry! You can find shredded Colby and Cheddar cheeses at any grocery store. We were even given a Tomato Sauce Recipe that can be used to complete your pizza.
Instructions: 1. Place tomatoes cored side-up in a baking sheet. Arrange garlic and herbs over tomatoes. Drizzle olive oil over tomatoes and sprinkle with salt and pepper. 2. Bake tomatoes at 300F 2 to 3 hours or until tomatoes are completely soft and slightly bursting. Cool 20 minutes then puree tomatoes in batches in a high-speed blender until smooth. Transfer tomato sauce to jars and cool slightly before using or storing in refrigerator.

Harvesting can be done by cutting off small portions or cutting down to the ground for the tender part of the grass.

- Cabbage - storage: refrigerate in salad crisper. Do not remove outer leaves prior to storage. Firm, compact cabbage will keep up to 3 weeks, but its nutritive value diminishes with time. If the outer leaves wilt, just remove them before cooking.
Have a pizza-licious weekend,
