Brenda’s photo, entered in the Harvest Photo Contest, is a reminder that it’s time to roast tomatoes. She says: “When life gives you tomatoes, roast them!”

With Jim’s simple technique and a little time in the kitchen, you can stock your pantry with flavorful tomatoes from your own backyard — or farmer’s market. His recipe calls for plum tomatoes topped with garlic, fresh parsley and thyme, but you can use any fresh herb you have on hand, or even some fresh breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese.
