Grapeful for Tomatoes

As summer winds down, we find ourselves reflecting on all of the delicious locally grown fruits and vegetables that this season has provided us with. We’ve already bid adieu to blueberries, strawberries, and cherries, but we’re not ready to say farewell to field-grown tomatoes just yet! In fact, we’ll be savoring this week’s delicious grape tomatoes – which are basically summer in a bite – for as long as we can.

Delicious raw or cooked, these grape tomatoes are perfect in salads, pastas, homemade sauces, or just eaten by the handful. You can substitute them for cherry tomatoes in any recipe, though they are generally smaller and a bit less sweet. They also typically have thicker skin than cherry tomatoes (just be sure not to tell any cherry tomatoes we said that!).

If you’re looking for a quick and easy recipe, look no further. This recipe for roasted grape tomatoes is one of our favorites, and it requires only five simple ingredients: grape tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, salt, and pepper.

Plumming 101

It helps to know a good plummer. And if you’re reading this, you’re in luck. This week we’re bringing you sweet, juicy Empress Plums from Klein’s Kill Fruit Farm. Delicious raw or cooked, these plums go great in fruit salads, puddings, ice creams – you name it. The flavor on this tender, late-summer fruit simply can’t be beat. Plums are also nutritional powerhouses, boasting high levels of Vitamin C, Vitamin K, and fiber.

Did you know plums are in the stone fruit family and are close relatives of cherries, peaches, and apricots? And while peaches are usually the darlings of summer, let’s all show a little love for the under-appreciated but incredibly tasty plum. Our favorite way to enjoy plums is to snack on them (morning, noon, and night!). You could go the more involved route and elevate their flavors in a light, refreshing salad like this one. Just cook your beets and peppers in the oven and top with fresh plums and tomatoes. Voila!
