Farmers Market Find: Summer Tomatoes

August 1 2010
Follow me on Twitter

I was in bit of a hurry today, so I could not shop leisurely or keep track of how much I spent at each farm. I am a little sad that I did not get the name of the ladies who were selling blackberries and boysenberries. Hopefully, they will be there in two weeks. I was very sad that Serendipity Farms no longer had their heirloom sun dried tomatoes. I really wish I stalked up on them last week, because their taste is phenomenal and add added mystery and depth to my lasagna, roasted veggies, chicken kebabs, pesto, sandwiches, omelets- I used them in everything! Italians first dried fresh tomatoes as way to store them for the winter.  Sun dried tomatoes also have the same nutritional value as fresh tomatoes- lycophene, vitamin B6, vitamin C, niacin, potassium, and folate.

These make me happy, great for Meatless Mondays

  1. I was the lucky recipient of a salad made from greens and the cherry tomatoes (above) – I find every reason to go back to the kitchen and pop more of these cherry puppies 🙂 And the stuffed squash blossoms made me feel like I was royalty .. the temparnillo barely stood up the yummy blossoms. Tough life from someone married to a healthy food blogger – I better hit the gym hard tomorrow! 😉
