Ahhh, the delicious bounty of summer harvest! Tomatoes, tomatoes, tomatoes! Thanks to generous folks we have baskets filled with vine ripened Michigan tomatoes. Some of our favorite uses:
Sliced and served on whole wheat toast spread with cream cheese. Top with a couple of basil leaves and a dash of Citrus Sea Salt.
Chopped and added to diced onions and jalapeno then add a touch of Milford's Mexican Blast for a fresh and light salsa.
A classic BLT, always delicious.
I relish this time of year and add a tomato to just about every meal. BUT, I can't keep up! And though I love to cook, I just haven't mastered the preserving angle like so many of my friends. So I tried making an easy tomato sauce that I could throw into pasta, onto pizza, etc... HOLY COW, I am in love! The roasting adds an intense tomato flavor with a little sweetness.
