A5: Never a big fan before but recently used them in ratatouille and an Asian stir-fry and enjoyed a lot. #cookclub
Q5: Anyone a big eggplant fan? They're also in season right now & I've been experimenting with them lately #cookclub
A4: I actually like to use the grill more during the next few months. Too darn hot to be outside right now. #cookclub
A4: Love making soups, too. Cooking with apples/spices like cinnamon and nutmeg make it feel like fall. #cookclub
The ones I bought at Whole Foods (in Clearwater) were good, and I found some tomatoes about a month ago at a small Largo market that were pretty good.
A3: I love roasting tomatoes, until they get wilty and release their juices. Mmmmm. #cookclub
Q3: What's your favorite way to prepare tomatoes? #cookclub
The season is pretty short, usually mid-summer to early fall, but they come in a whole variety of colors and are fun to work with.
Another piece of produce that's having a moment - heirloom tomatoes. I saw a big pile at Whole Foods this weekend and picked some up.
