I bought a plant of “Sweet 100’s” cocktail tomatoes, but in reality, it’s only Sweet 4. That’s all the tomatoes that are on the plant. It’s kind of pitiful. I was planning to make some roasted cocktail tomato jam to have over the winter when I am craving the sunshiny taste of fresh real tomatoes. I guess I will have to take a jaunt to the local Farmers’ Market and pick up some. The recipe I’ve linked is one of the few without a ton of sugar – some have more than three cups! I just want the simplest possible – tomatoes, olive oil, garlic and a bit of sea salt.
I picked up some beautiful Maryland corn for supper this evening and it was delicious! I used a little bit of Kerrygold Butter with herbs and garlic, (which I accidentally bought after the dog who’s staying with me ate a half a stick of regular butter and I had to go get more) and a sprinkling of sea salt. It was perfection.
Do you know the easiest way to cook corn? Freakishly simple: Chuck a piece of corn into the microwave. Don’t peel it or shuck it or anything. Set the microwave for four minutes. Pull the corn out. Cut off the bottom about a half inch above where the husks meet the stalk. Squeeze the corn from the silk end and a perfect piece of corn, with NO silk, will pop out. Butter and salt it. Eat and enjoy.
