How about some Salsa for those tasteless tomatoes. Perhaps you can get some flavor that way. I grow Manalucie hierloom tomatoes here in FL. Good heat tolerance and good flavor. Got my seeds from WWW.BURPEE.COM as previous provider no longer sells them.

Here is a recipe to consider - Also check with PCC-AL & Duey(IA) for some other GREAT salsa recipes.

1 Dozen tomatoes, skinned/seeded, chopped
2 medium sized Hot Peppers, chopped *(see note 1)
2 medium sized Green (Bell) Peppers, chopped
1 medium sized onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 cup Vinegar
1 Tablespoon salt
1 Tablespoon sugar
1 Teaspoon each of oregano, cumin, ground cayenne pepper *(note 2)

Note 1: You can use Jalapeno. I use Hungarian Wax Peppers because they are yellow and add more color.

Note 2: I control how hot I want the salsa with the ground cayenne pepper. Using 1 teaspoon is a mild salsa

. Chop tomatoes, peppers, onion and garlic into small pieces (consider using a Salad Shooter, which really speeds things up).
. Put in a big pot (Dutch Oven)
. Add vinegar and spices
. Bring to boil and cook on low heat for 15 minutes
. Fill hot sterilized jars
. Put on lids and process in hot water bath for 15 minutes.

. Let the chopped tomatoes drain well before adding them to the pot for a thicker salsa
