This Is Kind of Becoming a Tradition

The mango tomato plant in the backyard produced a late crop.  

They were pretty nasty looking (see the tomato on the right), but I was able to skin them by making a shallow X on the bottom with a paring knife.  Then I dropped them into boiling water for about 30 seconds, plunged them into ice water and the skins came right off.

The result?  The nice, clean, juicy tomato on the left.  And the tomato sauce I made with it was delicious.

This isn't the first time we've gotten a late crop.  Click here to see our harvest in 2012.

  1. How cool! Did they taste extra sweet? I've heard cold weather sweetens some vegetables...but maybe it's just the leafy ones.
