Mom's Freezer Roasted Tomatoes
(the juliet tomatoes are great for this)
In the bottom of a large roasting pan place 1slivered onion tossed with olive oil, salt and pepper.
Halve the tomatoes and place cut side up on the onion.
Throw 4 cloves of chopped garlic on top.  Drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper.  Roast at 425 until all juice has evaporated.  Cool before freezing or use them right away as a pasta sauce or pizza topping.

If anyone want s extra canteloupe melons for fresh eating or to freeze for smoothies, we have lots of them this week and will give you an extra one.  Just ask at market or email me and i'll send you one next pick-up!
