For Those Of You Who Need A Breather

I highly recommend Feral’s gardening and winemaking posts.

Our local farmer’s market starts this weekend. Thank God. Maybe there will be some tomatoes what don’t taste like cardboard so I can finally make decent bruschetta.

    Here’s what I do and I don’t even miss fresh tomatoes all winter long. Buy a box of cherry tomatoes, rinse, toss with olive oil, kosher salt, pepper and the herb of your choice and roast in your toaster oven (you can broil them or do them at 450) until they are roasted, dry, and shriveled. They make incredible tomato jam. You can serve them as is as a side dish, or toss them into a fritatta where they are bursts of pure tomato flavor without the water to make the thing watery.

  4. Thanks for the link. We do a lot of gardening, too. Literally. And metaphorically.

    Listen to mother nature, one eats fresh tomatoes, peaches and sweet corn in july, august and september. That’s it. I wait from october through june to eat the next. Makes em’ taste even better. Those things you find in the grocery store that look kind of like tomatoes the rest of the year aren’t really tomatoes.
