Mater hater?

A skillet calzone you’ll love anyway

Carly Guinn isn’t much for tomatoes.

She grew up in Ohio on a 100-acre apple orchard, welcoming families and visitors into the orchard for the full apple experience, including horse-drawn sleigh rides in winter.

Now she lives with her husband, Spencer, and two daughters, Ella and Kayla, on a farm in Boyle County. Both Carly and Spencer have jobs off the farm, but they still run cattle and grow corn, soybeans and rye. The beans go straight to an elevator, but the rye goes to distilleries. And they grow Bloody Butcher corn, an old variety, for grinding into meal and making small-batch bourbon.

“We always liked the idea of diversification,” says Carly. So last summer, the Guinns added tomatoes to their farm—2 acres of tomatoes to sell wholesale.

“Neither one of us like tomatoes,” says Carly.

But she made some salsa, and diced some for the freezer, using them in cooking, like the favorite family recipe that follows.
