Warm Autumn Sunshine @ Annarasa

My plants have been doing well all summer. And now as autumn has traipsed in, I am still getting a small bounty of vegetables!! Here is some produce from my Patio Garden: juicy pear tomatoes, yellow tomatoes, some okra, and chilies!!

I also grew and got some cucumbers, sweet peppers, and zucchini - all of which we consumed before I got the change to whip my camera out:)

Vine-Ripened Cherry Tomatoes: Oven-Dried with Olive Oil & Herbs

I picked up a wonderful stash of vine ripened tomatoes from my latest run to our local 'Pick-Ur-Own' at canning prices. There were red tomatoes, Roma, cherry tomatoes, and my favourite the pick tomatoes with their flavoursome tanginess. Leaving the cherry and pick tomatoes aside, I pickled all the red and Roma tomatoes using two of my well-tested recipes.

Fada | Dalia aur Tamatar Ka Upma (Broken Wheat Porridge with Tomatoes)

Whenever I think porridge, I remember the milk and honey soaked dalia (broken wheat) of my school days. Now a days, I like my dalia salty, and yes you guessed it, spicy!! Here is a recipe that is both quick and easy. I like to make this for weekend breakfast, as it is both nutritious and filling and perfect for a good start to the day!!

Strawberry Preserve for the Daring Cooks September 2010

Ah! Food Preservation, what a perfect theme for late summer! Living in the northern hemisphere, there is the urge to squirrel away the bright flavours of summer for the icy cold winter, when sun-ripened vegetables and fruit rarely grace our tables.
