SAVING THE BEST
FOR LAST

As the summer gives way
to shorter days and cooler nights,
and market produce brings a new bounty
of apples, squash and pumpkin . . .

some of the best flavors are saved for last,
especially homegrown heirloom tomatoes.
(Always a sign that summer's soon over.)

These heirlooms -- Cherokee Purple tomatoes --
are prettiest (I think),
although they're called "ugly" and "gnarly."
Their goodness is on the inside,
despite their unusual shapes and bottoms.

Chefs and gardeners know their late season goodness.
Slice some on a warm tomato sandwich,
or roast them on a baking sheet for extra sweetness.

Soon, homegrown tomatoes will be gone.
(Farewell, tasty friends.)

    My mother taught me ... she is an expert!

    One day you do not work, go into the kitchen ... you'll see that relaxing ... and then there is always in the pantry ...

    A kiss!
    Two!


    I give you my recipe:

    peeled tomatoes
    chop tomatoes
    introduce glass boat clean and dry
    put in a pot cloth fabric
    put the cans with tomato
    water fill up plug
    put another cloth over cloth
    leave 30 minutes

    NATURAL TOMATO WHOLE YEAR.
