I was raised to never, ever, ever refrigerate tomatoes.  But I also find the folks in The Food Lab to be extremely accurate.

  • It’s been a while, hasn’t it?  Well the first BLT of the summer made me think of posting.  That and paying the bill to keep jerzeetomato.com for another year.

These little gems went into a delicious chicken fricassee last night. They’re Sweet 100’s from a potted plant that just won’t quit.

Last night’s dinner may have been about the end for our own tomatoes.  We used about a dozen San Marzano Gigante’s to make a sauce into which we threw some clams, mussels, and scallops.  A terrific Friday night fish stew.  But today The Principessa did me a solid and took the walk of shame at the Montclair Farmers Market to purchase a few slicers as the garden is about done with tomatoes.

There are a couple Striped Germans which will probably ripen if the varmint doesn’t get them first. But that’s about it.



Things are going well

Our production seems to be outpacing the losses from shoplifting by the varmints.

Missing: Tomatoes.  A lot of tomatoes.

Suspect:  The usual suspects.

Due to some rather draconian firearm  laws in my town, I can’t deal with the tomato thieves the way I’d like.  So far, the squirrels have out-consumed the family to a ratio of about 3 to 1.

However, if I lived in the city I’d be dealing with a whole other class of thieves.

Too many tomatoes, what a chore! NOT!

Primo and The Principessa made this wonderful tart on Saturday
