Jersey Fresh Tomato Soup

New Jersey is a well-known producer of tomatoes. Having our own garden leaves us with an abundance at the end of the season. Not wanting the tomatoes to go to waste, Hubby and I came up with our favorite version of tomato soup.

Best Tuna Melt (New Jersey Diner Style)

Rating: Unrated
If you order a tuna melt in a New Jersey diner, you'll get something very similar to this! My method of topping the tuna salad with cheese FIRST, then tomato and more cheese, keeps the toppings from sliding off the bread.

Any Flavor Taffy

This recipe is soft and can be made in a wide variety of flavors. I think the secret to the softness is the corn starch. I hope it works out for you.

A ripper is a local Jersey term for hot dogs that are deep-fried. The term is used to describe the ripping of the hot dog skin when bathed in hot oil. Add bacon, corn chips, and onions in sauce and you've got yourself the Ultimate Jersey Ripper.
