Speaking of those lycopene rich lovelies, here is the best way that I've found to eat a garden fresh tomato.
This isn't exactly a "Rock-n-Recipe." Let's just hum the old tune, "You Say "Tomato," I Say "Tomato" to this one.
First start with fresh garden tomatoes and a big pot of boiling water~
Next, place said tomatoes into the scalding water for 20-30 seconds until their skins begin to split a bit---everyone into the hot tub!
Then run them under cold water--the skins just slip right off. Slice them and place in fridge until co-00ld. Salt...pepper...devour!
