It looks like a good recipe. I wish I had more time to try it out. I might have to save it for next year.

Hello there Chicken Keepers!
Mmmm this looks delicious and it's one I will copy and try one day. My tomatoes are just starting to produce again so I should have a bumper crop in a few weeks. Thanks for sharing this recipe with us! Have a wonderful Wednesday...

Sounds awesome! Unfortunately, I never did get my garden in this year, so no 'maters for me.
