I am a TOMATO girl. I crave them and there isn't any style of them in which I don't like. My favorite is biting into a tomato like it's an apple. Sprinkle a little sea salt into the bite..... so yummy! I grew up on fresh tomatoes from my family's gardens. I love tomato basil soup and my father's secret tomato egg scramble. Once a week, I require a poppy seed bagel shmeared with chive cream cheese with a slice of tomato. I LIVE for tomato season. This recipe makes tomatoes that are out of season still delicious, sweet and perfect to eat! I use these tomatoes to make a tomato soup, panini, stuffed chicken breasts, or I add them to a pasta dish. If you make a batch you can keep them up to a week in the fridge by placing the tomatoes in a air tight container. I use a jar with a drizzle of olive oil. These tomatoes also make a great little snack or condiment. It's a basic recipe that is a staple to use in your cooking!
