From the Publisher

"Carver’s Tomatoes" includes all of George Washington Carver’s 115 Tomato Recipes updated for today’s cooks. These were originally published in 1918 when Carver ran the Agriculture Department at the Tuskegee Institute under Booker T. Washington.
A brief biography of Carver is included to highlight his historical significance. He was born a slave but was both an educator and a celebrity in adulthood. In his time, he was a renowned Botanist.
His recipes remain relevant through their use of common pantry and garden ingredients. Most of these recipes are quite inexpensive to prepare and they are generally quite flexible, allowing the cook to create dishes to serve any number of people.
The recipes are wide-ranging, from basic ketchups to soups and salads to dinner entrees.
These recipes should prove particularly helpful to cooks with a garden, since there are a good number of recipes featuring green tomatoes, uses for small ripe tomatoes, as well as sauces such as his Tomato Soy, several ketchups, and large batches of tomato sauces meant to be preserved.
Many of Carver’s recipes use only basic seasoning such as salt and pepper, so they have been updated to include suggestions for more diverse spice blends. His cooking methods and utensils, likewise, were basic so some cooking instructions have been updated for the use of modern appliances.
For the reader’s convenience, the Table of Contents lists each recipe by Carver’s number and title and is linked to the full recipe in the book.
A table of measurements and equivalents follows the recipes.

However You Say Tomato, ’Tis the Season to Eat Them

CONSIDER THE TOMATO: EASY TO grow, healthy to eat, tasty in just about any recipe and pleasant to look at. And come late summer, in steady supply. Though you can find a stalwart plum variety in produce bins during the coldest winter months, August is the tomato’s season to shine. Farmers’ markets and grocery stores are bursting with lesser-known but arguably more-flavorful varieties, including punch-colored cherries and big-mac heirlooms. “Heirlooms ripened on the vine are the tastiest of all tomatoes,” says Amy Goldman Fowler, author of The Heirloom Tomato. “I think their beauty is more than

Scientists Tweaked Natural Mutations To Create A Better Tomato

pexels In genetics, sometimes one plus one equals zero. Genes that should work in concert with each other, each magnifying the other’s effects, can in occasionally cancel each other out instead. A study released Thursday in the journal Cell Press looks at the genetic mutation that gave us the modern, domesticated tomato, shedding some light on how these cancellations happen —and how we can use them to create a more productive tomato. Modern tomatoes are the result of a mutation that likely arose with the spread of agriculture some eight to ten thousand years ago. Ancient tomatoes were smaller,
