Homegrown Tomatoes

I love homegrown tomatoes. The best in the world are grown in Arkansas, USA. Don't even try to argue with me about it. Second runner up...Creole Tomatoes from Louisiana.

Well...I won't argue with you about locale...but indeed, home grown tomatoes Are The Best!

I don't care what the label says, those dark pink tasteless balls in stores from god-knows-where unceremoniously laid on a piece of Styrofoam and covered in saran wrap are NOT tomatoes. They sort of look like tomatoes, thus some are fooled into serving them. As far as serving them, they are best served tossed -- at schismatic bishops. That is their only redeeming value. (The store-bought tomatoes, not the bishops).

By the way, have you ever made, or had, tomato marmalade, of home grown tomatoes? If not, you MUST try it! Absolutely wonderful! Food of heaven!

Unfortunately, I don't have a recipe :(

A friend used to make it, but he has long since moved away, and we've lost contact.

Tomato marmalade is sweet, like jelly. Great on hot biscuits or toast with butter...just awesome!

I'll try and 'net about and see what I can find. :-)
