Tomatoes truly are incredible. A superfood that we can all grow with relative ease. I have very special memories of walking into my Grandfather’s greenhouse which he devoted completely to the growing these precious little fruits. The unmistakeable smell of the vines transports me back to the halcyon days of my childhood summers with every single sniff.
Now is the perfect time to buy tomatoes in the UK as we are in the height of the harvest. Better still, many home-growers have a glut and are keen to share.
There’s such an array of things that you can make to prolong the joy; relish, chutney, ketchup, passata.
Why not go a little Spanish with ‘Pa amb tomaquet’ and rub some thick-cut grilled bread with garlic and freshly cut tomato for breakfast… Maybe some shavings of Manchego cheese to top it off. Heaven.
