Cherry Tomato Tart

This cherry tomato tart calls for a homemade herbed crust, heavy cream, goat cheese, Parmigiano-Reggiano, and tons of tomatoes.

Tomato cheese tart with an herbed crust

Originally published July 8, 2015

An odd and unusual thing happened to us this summer in our garden. Something almost out of science fiction. [Cue otherworldly music.]

Let me back up. Before this year, The One’s and my vegetable garden took up all of a 10-foot circle around an old tree stump. We would dutifully...

Homemade Tomato Paste

Homemade tomato paste is surprisingly easy to make in your kitchen. All you need are tomatoes, salt, olive oil, and a food mill. And time. Lots of good old-fashioned unattended time.

トマトの消費

from IRIB Japanese Radio (2015年6月7日 北川):

ここ近年のFAO・国連食糧農業機関の推定値によりますと、イランのトマト消費量はイタリアを大幅に上回り、世界第6位だということです。確かに、イランの料理にはトマトソースが多く使われるだけでなく、サラダに入れたり、肉料理の付け合せにされたりと、毎食トマトが出るような気がします。一般的にこちらのトマトは中型のトマトが多く、丸々とした日本の大玉トマトに比べて、細長く、楕円形です。日本のトマトに比べて甘み、酸味ともに控えめで、生食用にも調理用にも適しています。先日、大きな丸型のトマトを発見し、調理用に使ったところ、予想以上に酸味が出てしまいました。イランでもさまざまなトマトが出始めているようです。

The Best Way to Save Tomato Paste (And Use It Later) — Tips from The Kitchn

The best way to store leftover tomato paste

Show of hands. How many times have you actually finished a can of tomato paste? Be honest now. Here, I'll go first: Approximately zero. I tend to use tomato paste in recipes that require only a tablespoon or two, and then I stash the rest of the can in the fridge, furtively and guiltily, knowing it will not see the light of day again until it grows a thin layer of fuzzy organisms and goes to its final rest in the recycle bin. Shameful, I know. I feel shame.

There is, however, an answer to tomato paste waste. This is the very best way to store it away and make it easy to use later. It's time to rescue your tomato paste!

'Tomatoes are Christian,' Egyptian Salafi group warns

The [Popular Egyptian Islamic] association published the warning on its Facebook page with a photo of a tomato cut in half, revealing a cross-shaped interior.

A message posted on the page read, "Eating tomatoes is forbidden because they are Christian. [The tomato] praises the cross instead of Allah and says that Allah is three [in reference to the Holy Trinity]."

The message went on to say, "I implore you to spread this photo because there is a sister from Palestine who saw the Prophet of Allah in a vision and he was crying, warning his nation against eating [tomatoes]. If you don’t spread this [message], know that it is the devil who stopped you.”
