Fresh Tomatoes Reign Supreme

Every now and then I come across someone who says “I don’t like tomatoes.”

After careful research, it usually turns out that this poor soul has never eaten a fresh, home-grown tomato, a totally different animal than the so-called vine-ripened shipping tomatoes available in grocery stores, which have the texture of Styrofoam and the flavor of cardboard.

If the tomato-less person can be convinced to take just one bite from an authentic home-grown tomato, they will never go tomato-less again.

These recipes range from the very simple to the more complicated, but all are good. And if you don’t have time to prepare any of this, a simple tomato sandwich is very hard to beat.
