The recent heat has suddenly brought on the ripening of the greenhouse
So now we think...what shall we do with the bright red treasure this year?
Well the different types lend themselves to various dishes.
We oven dry quite a lot and store them in olive oil in the freezer...they don't keep as well as bought sun-dried in my experience.
We combine them with courgettes, garlic and onions to make oven roasted veg.
We stuff them with rice and herbs like Italian antipasti.
We eat them straight from the vine of course and make loads of tomato and cheese sandwiches to name just a few uses .
There's hardly anything nicer than entering a greenhouse full of tomato vines ripening.
The smell is one of those summer memories that I store up for winter months.
And if any of my lovely blogging friends have other suggestions for these fruits of the vine......
....I would be ever-so-grateful!
