This looks really good. However, if I can’t print off the recipe, to take to my kitchen, I can’t use it. Is there a way to print the recipe. I also, wanted to print the article on helping green tomatoes to ripen, such as the ones picked just before the first frost, but couldn’t find a way to do that.
