'Never Ever Put A Tomato In A Fridge' + Other Tips & Summer Recipe




If you are lucky enough to grow your own tomatoes you know how great they can taste and with summer here ... well almost, you may well find watching this short video will give you some handy hints. Whether you grow your own or have just bought some enjoy this short video from 'The Produce Guy' and why not try out Delia's recipe idea below - it's great 

 



Here is a wonderful simple recipe taken from Delia Smith’s Summer Collection.

Ingredients:
1 lb (450 g) tomatoes
4 oz (110 g) Mozzarella sliced
About 24 fresh basil leaves ( dried basil could be used)
2 Tablespoons extra virgin (Italian) olive oil
Salt and freshly milled black pepper

Method:

Put the tomatoes in a bowl and pour boiling water over them. Leave them for 1 minute, then drain and slip the skins off using a cloth to protect your hands if necessary. 
Then slice the tomatoes thinly. All you do now is arrange the slices of mozzarella and tomato in layers, either in rows or concentric circles, on a serving dish. 
Scatter the whole basil leaves over them, then, just before serving, sprinkle with plenty of salt and freshly milled black pepper and drizzle the oil all over. 

Note of caution; many may eat this with warmed ciabatta bread, but if you are living the LCHF lifestyle, or are diabetic and need to keep an eye on blood glucose numbers, I think a better suggestion would be to eat it with some wonderful thinly sliced ham. 
Your choice of course.

All the best Jan

My tomatoes are sometimes stored in my chiller compartment with my lettuce and cucumber and other salad items. I must remember not to do this. Thanks for the tips.
