The cook’s challenge is to seek out flavorful tomatoes, use them at their peak, and prepare them in a way that best shows off their fresh flavor. Before the season ends, you can capture and save summer’s bounty, though, by freezing them. Jesse Cool lists her favorite varieties, how to balance the acid and sugar for great taste, and how to store them before cooking or enjoying them. Her recipes cover a wide spectrum, from barely cooked tomato sauce dishes to oven roasting for deep flavor.
