Roasted San Marzano Tomatoes
Intense Roasted Flavor
When these gems are roasted the flavor is absolutely incredible. Rich, flavorful and sweet flavors in every bite is intoxicating. In fact, it’s so good that a fresh roasted San Marzano tomatoes batch never makes it to sauce. We keep sneaking in bites and snacking on them that they just end up eaten by the end of the day. There’s a reason why these tomatoes are prized for making sauce! So the reality is that if you do decide to make sauce, buy extra. Once you start roasting them, you’ll need an extra batch to make it to saucing.
So easy to make. Enjoy!
2 pounds San Marzano tomatoes , halved
garlic salt, to taste
olive oil for coating
Kosher salt , to taste

Use the roasted tomatoes halves as a side dish (great as appetizers on grilled bread). You can also chop or blend the tomatoes up into a sauce.

White Wine Poached Pears
Poached pears in white wine sauce is a classic French dessert that's easy to make and delicious to eat
4 medium firm Warren pears
2 cups white wine
3 1/2 cups water
1 cinnamon stick
1 vanilla bean, or 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2 cups white granulated sugar
Thinly peel the pears, making sure to keep the stem intact. Slightly slice the bottom of the pears so they will stand up in the pan and when serving.
In a large and tall saucepan, stir together the white wine, water, cinnamon stick, vanilla bean, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium-high heat.
Once the liquid is simmering, add the prepared pears and place them standing on the pan. The liquid should cover most of the pears' height.
Poach the pears, uncovered, for 7 to 9 minutes until their meat is slightly tender, but they are still firm enough to hold their shape. Watch this process carefully as you do not want the pears to overcook or they will collapse.
Remove the pears from the poaching liquor with a slotted spoon and place them on individual serving plates.
Return the poaching liquid to a simmer. Add the sugar and allow the mixture to reduce in volume by half or about 6 to 8 minutes. The syrup is ready when it is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.
Remove the cinnamon stick and vanilla bean from the syrup and strain the liquid through a fine sieve.
Drizzle each pear with the wine syrup and add any other topping that you'd like.
Redwood Room Apple Pie
Snacking Cake Made with Prevedelli Farms Blackberries
This is from our customer in Saratoga, Her name is Mary.
She has added some notes below
This is a recipe that I first made last year, and I wanted to send it to you then, but I never got around to it.
Today I came home from Saratoga market with some of your berries, and I immediately set out to make this delicious and easy cake. I didn't have any buttermilk in the house, so I made some by adding lemon juice to milk. I may have added too many berries because it was not quite cakey enough and had a tendency to fall apart. I hate to admit it, but I ate almost half of the cake for my lunch. !!!!!!
Pictures are from Mary attempt at making this cake.
