This year however has been an entirely different scenario. The tomatoes have been abounding. Baskets such as the one above has been filled over and over and then over again. So far we have 20 quarts of tomato sauce and a few pounds of tomatoes in the freezer ...wheee!
Now the next part may make you laugh...........I truly hate eating tomatoes... Can you believe it? I really love the flavor but hate the texture. The pulp, the seeds, the skin how it pops in your mouth...ewww.
This is why most of my tomatoes end up as sauce. Interestingly enough though I found this tomato dressing that I absolutely love via tastespotting. I get the flavor of tomatoes in my salad without any of my texture "issues" ..LOL. I'm betting you will love it too!
