    Sweetiebarbara's Note:

    When the end of the garden comes, I have too many peppers, tomatoes, and other vegetables. I gleaned from all the recipes here I could find and adjusted it to suit our garden produce and tastes. We grow our own herbs, and I tend to be very heavy handed with basil and moderately heavy handed with oregano.
