  • A great dip for ripe tomatoes, plus tips for canning the rest

    Occasionally I will get phone calls regarding recipes I have had in this column or questions on ways to prepare different foods, or even questions about canning. I always feel flattered that the readers think I might have the answer to their particular dilemma. If I don’t know the answer, I will make every effort to find it out.

    This week a reader called to inquire about canning tomatoes. A friend had given her a large bag of tomatoes, but her dilemma was whether or not she could still can them since they had already been refrigerated.

    Several  years ago I had a close friend who had had breast cancer.  Seven years, almost to the day, when she was reaching the point of the doctors declaring her cured, she found out that it had progressed to bone cancer. 

    Sherry was an exceptional friend and co-worker.  She was remarkable; always with a smile on her face and a special ear for listening to anyone’s problems.  She continued to work as a research nurse at Emory until her illness took too much of her strength.
