You'd be hard pressed to name a cuisine that doesn't utilize tomatoes in some way. It's the most versatile item from the garden and nothing beats the taste of a summer tomato. But if you want year-round tomatoes, there is a variety available by can or box. Your best bet is to keep on hand a mix of diced, crushed and whole tomatoes for a range of dishes, like chili, spaghetti sauce, shrimp creole and more. Of course, any of these will work if you have a cutting board and a knife, but it's handy to just dump the tomatoes straight into the pot.
