In addition to the long days tending the farm, we have enjoyed all the Christmas decorating, shopping, cooking, and celebrating. During the holidays, I love to search for new and exciting ways to cook with tomatoes. I found a recipe for a "tomato cake" that sounds delicious and healthy! Also, there are recipes for "sweet tomato preserves", " tomato pie", "sweet tomato turnovers", "tomato sorbet" and the list goes on and on. In fact, the tomato can be used anywhere a strawberry or similar fruit is called for in a recipe. After all, the tomato is a unique fruit that tastes great not only with salt, but sugar too. Tomatoes are so versatile, very low in calories, high in fiber and the antioxidant lycopeine as well as having a very low glycemic index. I hope that you have the opportunity to try some of the recipes we've shown here and in our Tomato Tastes page. Nature's perfect fruit are great for the holidays, too!
If you haven't tried our sweet grape tomatoes yet, please do so. You won't be disappointed.
