in the dog days of summer
gardens overflow with tomatoes
i find myself
stores of the fruit
preservation on my mind

here are a few 
ways to preserve  the bounty
to enjoy
when days are not so long

this is really simple.  peel tomatoes and cram into a jar, use a skewer to secure tomatoes if they start to float to the top.  fill the jar with vodka and store in the refrigerator for at least 5 days.  i make several jars because i like to use the tomatoes and the vodka for pasta alla vodka sauce. leftover vodka is really great for a bloody mary pick me up.
