5. I do whatever

baking I can, some for the freeezer, when it gets really cold. Baking bread is good, I like rolled oat bread, I have a resipe from a cookbook printed in the 1940s.


If you have garden tomatoes you could make garlic soup and freeze that for when you have a cold or just need a good warm up.

Garlic soup:

7-9 med tomatoes, wedged/cut into large pieces
one med. sized bulb of garlic, peeled, lightly crushed
one large Bay leaf
2-3 TBSP olive oil
3-4 qts. water (approx)

Peel garlic and lightly crush cloves then brown in the olive oil over med heat in a stock pot. When garlic is golden with browning add tomatoes and Bay leaf and enough water to cover tomatoes. Bring to boil then simmer uncovered until water level cooks down about an inch from original level, about an hour. Remove from heat, let rest about twenty minutes then strain out pulp. You now have a beautiful, nearly clear broth to serve as part of a meal or on its own with a nice bread. It's tastes mostly like tomato soup.

Optional: sometimes I like to bring it to a boil and add a dropped egg which adds a nice texture ...usually done just prior to serving. This was how it was introduced to me.

Since the recipe renders about a gallon at a time, I freeze what I won't be using right away sans the egg. It stores well in the freezer for when I need a boost or just a fine soup.
