Summer's Bounty -- a bumper crop of goodness

Chef John keeps things fresh by canning today's harvest for tomorrow's table

This summer has had an abundance of "goodies" from our garden and from our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program through Greene's Country Store in Lake St. Louis.  Our herb garden has really loved the weather, and all of our varieties of basil have been "basking in the sun" prior to settling in a delightful morning breakfast recipe.

Our tomato plants have become gargantuan towers, overflowing with "just-about-ripe" beauties.  We've never met a tomato we didn't like :-)

Chef John has been busy taking items from our CSA as well as the garden and canning them so that our guests can enjoy this goodness all year long.

We're looking forward to trying all of the varieties of foods he has canned so far!
