Episode 86 gave you a few super simple ways to deal with tomatoes. No recipes, no fuss, no muss, fool-proof ideas that take less than 5 minutes of prep and virtually no ingredients beyond the tomatoes themselves.
Episode 87 gives you some tips on how to your hands on tons of tomatoes.
This is the time of year when I transform box after box of old shitty tomatoes into yummy stuff. In Episode 86 I shared with you how to deal with the tomato influx even if you don't seek out box after box like I do.
In this episode I offer you a few tips on how to get very cheap tomatoes. Next week in episode 88 I'll share with you how to make tomato ketchup, BBQ sauce and confit.
In Episode 64 I introduced you to the magnifient garlic scape. I promised to focus episode 65 on how to cook them. Unfortunately a sour garlic pickle, a dream about eating lunch in a Ugandan village and a bowl of rice pudding got in my way.
So where does that leave us? First of all I placed some great stuff about cooking garlic scapes all ther way at the bottom of this post. Second of all, the dream about Uganda prompted me to revisit a meal I had while there last summer and share the experience with you. And finally, you ask what about the sour garlic pickle and rice pudding. Later this week you'll learn more but for now, join me in a remote Ugandan village for lunch.
