  • 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.
