Tomatoes till we bust

The tomato days are here. They really only start in mid-July, and we will see them till early October. I have learned to wait for them. No tunnels, no Canada-grown (sorry, Canada), but sun-ripened fruit from Jersey, upstate New York, and Long Island.

And then they will be over.

The best way to eat the first ones is to toast some good sourdough bread, rub it with raw garlic, smear it with mayonnaise, load it with tomato slices, salt and pepper it, and drizzle some olive oil over the lot. It is simple and it is decadent.

If you want to go crazy, add some basil.
