Andi Tomato Canape

Our town of Northfield was hit hard by hail a few days ago. Many tomato gardens were damaged and tomatoes had to be harvested. We prepared oven-dried tomatoes to show what could be done with the unexpected harvest. We served the dried tomatoes in a cracker and sour cream canape.
Finally, we prepared stir-fried okra, lightly salted and without the slimy texture that turns many people away.
