Tomatoes in the Summer: Straight up, in the garden

There are two types of people: those who enjoy tomatoes plain, and those who don’t.

I was in the latter camp until I started paying more attention to seasonality and quality of produce. Now, when I get a tomato that is perfectly ripe and juicy, the best way to eat it is plain. In the garden, right after it’s picked.

If you don’t pick it from the plant, you can enjoy it in your kitchen with some sprinkled sea salt and freshly ground pepper.

Mozzarella, basil and olive oil don’t hurt, either.

The above photo is my dad. We were touring the gigantic garden of a Hutterite Colony near Conrad, Montana.
