Not only do home-grown tomatoes taste delicious (BLT, anyone?), they’re packed with vitamin C, vitamin A and powerful antioxidants known for fighting cancer and disease.

Preserve them in a number of ways:

• Peel and freeze (whole or chopped) for use in sandwiches, salads and cooked dishes.

• Can tomatoes using a boiling water canner or pressure canner.

• Dry tomatoes using your oven or a dehydrator and store them in the freezer in an airtight container.
