Wrap corns in foil and grill them..........taste yummy.

Put slices of tomatoes on grilled cheese sandwiches also taste good.

This may come under the heading of pasta sauce, but my family has always stewed tomatoes. We peel a buch of em, dice em, put em in a Dutch oven, add some diced celery, green peppers, and whatever other veggies might be to your liking, then boil them for about 10 mins. After they cool we put them in Ziploc freezer bags and into the freezer they go. It adds a nice summery flavor to dishes like Spanish rice, chili and spaghetti all through the winter.

As for corn on the cob, I have a friend who blanches it, and he claims it tastes as good the following January as it did the previous summer. eat

Has anyone ever made "sun pickles"? I usually do a couple of batches every year. They're the best pickles I ever tasted.

(aside to Savannah: They do not - repeat not - taste like kerosene cucumbers. grinsmiley )

I don't really know of any offhand, but when I'm looking for recipes I go to www.cooks.com or www.allrecipes.com. They have tons of different ones, you may be able to find some good ones there. Good luck! Thumbsup

You could make garden salsa! Yummy!

Rob, I love sun pickles! My brother and I made a batch last week. (Or was it two weeks ago? It was during a heat wave) The pickles are, of course, already gone, since we made them at the campground. Everyone who came by to visit had some, so they were gone within a couple of days. grinsmiley

Rob or Savannah, would either of you share the sun pickle recipe? I've got lots of cucumbers that I need to do something with.

SUN PICKLES

Ingredients:

pickling cukes (enough to fill a gallon jar)
4 cups water
2 cups white vinegar
8 heads of dill (or more if desired)
6 cloves of garlic
1/2 cup of kosher salt (or less if desired)
1/2 teaspoon of alum

Directions:

Put garlic cloves in gallon jar, then fill with cucumbers, adding heads of dill so that they're spread randomly among the cukes.

Combine water, vinegar, kosher salt and alum; mix until ingredients are thoroughly dissolved. Pour mixture into jar. If it isn't quite filled all the way, top off with water.

Put the jar in a sunny location and let it set for three days, after which the pickles are ready to eat. They refrigerate well and will keep all summer.

This recipe calls for pickling cukes, but if you only have full-size ones, you can slice them into smaller pieces and use those instead.
