Have you tried Kumatoes? These wonderful small brown tomatoes are a delight. The flavor is reminiscent of long ago tomatoes from my grandparents’ gardens.
You might be familiar with those tomatoes, warm from the sun, enjoyed with a little salt, right there in the garden, tomato juice dripping from your chin.
Oh my…a Kumato, good with a little sprinkle of roasted garlic sea salt or in a salad.
J has several tomato plants, this Summer. The tomatoes aren’t ripe yet, but we have high hopes for fresh tomatoes by the 4th of July or shortly after.
- 1 medium to large tomato
- 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves
- 4 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese
- 4 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
