By placing chopped heirloom tomatoes in a cheesecloth and allowing them to hang, bundled, all night over a bowl, you get the essence of tomato flavor in the lightest of liquids.
That's my pink dessert plate, part of a set of Kri Kri from a designer in Seattle. I call them my Pee Wee Herman plates: each one is a different color with different hand-painted designs. Anyone who can help me find more wins a prize.
In starting this blog, I realize I have a backlog of good stuff related to farms that I can start to highlight. And today is Saturday, when the farmers market at Cabrillo College happens. By now, the plant lady has tomato seedlings that are a foot tall, and the musicians have come back from their bad-weather break. It's not as pretty weather as it was yesterday, but it should be nice. Come to think of it, looking at a farmers market would be the perfect way to launch this blog.
