Tomatoes: Ugly but Good
They aren't always pretty, our tomatoes. These were the ones I picked yesterday, fresh from the vine... dents, cracks, blemishes and all.
On the outside, they look like the motley crew of a grungy garage band. But on the inside? They're a world-class symphony of tomato flavor -- tuned to perfection. Sweet and juicy, with a hint of tartness. Delicious.
We've been enjoying our ugly-but-good tomatoes in all sorts of ways. We've put them in panzanella...
... in eggplant parmesan and on sandwiches...
... and heaped on top of a taco salad.
Ugly tomatoes? Yes. But they sure do clean up well.
