DRIED TOMATOES-THE MOHAWK TRAIL-SAMMY

8 10 2014

Bad weather was coming through my area last night and in some parts of town it did.  There was at least one micro burst in town in which cars were in trees and 100 year old trees were thrown around..   Some things on the porch were knocked over but no water in the barn.  I made sure everything was dug out before I went to bed.

DRIED TOMATOES

The tomatoes dried nicely and I will do more today.  It takes a lot of dried tomatoes  to fill a small jar.  The recipe called for blanching the dried tomatoes in wine vinegar and patting them dry before putting them into the jar.  I packed each jar with sprigs of rosemary and some basil salt and pepper, covered all with a good olive oil.  Olive oil should cover the tomatoes completely.  I will be checking the jar for a few days and adding more olive oil as needed.

 This jar is for my Son in Law Rick who really appreciates things like this.

THE MOHAWK TRAIL

Yesterday we took a little ride on the Mohawk Trail.  Things have changed so much there that we cold hardly recognize where we visited as children.   It was a beautiful ride though and we saw the famous Indian statue.  The Indian culture is so much apart of this area.  There are shops and Pow Wow’s are held nearby.

  Many parts of the road were washed out during the last hurricane.

 The scenery was spectacular.  So many hairpin turns.
