Can tomato recover from early blight ?

Hi, Earlier this season some of my tomato suffered from early blight like symptoms. I removed those yellow leaves and as the rain stops (Finally!) it seems the tomato has grown back some green leaves and started to bear fruits. We already harvested two red one and ate them. The fruit looks normal smooth skin firm no rot scar etc. Question is: is the plant recovered? Can I eat the tomato from this plant if it looks like healthy normal? Thanks.

Yes you may indeed eat your tomatoes regardless if your plants are/were infected with early or late blight, but I would suggest before cooking, canning, freezing you taste them as they may taste sharper than usual. Keep a close eye on your plants and plan on rotating your tomatoes (3yrs).
