At the beginning of every month, I am offering C&Z readers a new wallpaper to apply on the desktop of your computer, with a food-related picture and a calendar of the current month.
Our calendar for August is a picture of slow-roasted tomatoes (tomates confites in French), a fine way of preserving a glut of fresh tomatoes, if such is your delicious plight.
It’s simple, really: you just bake halved tomatoes for a few hours in a low oven, and the process leaves you with scarlet half-moons that pack a tomato punch, ready to be thrown later in salads, sandwiches, pasta, and assorted dips and spreads. (See recipe details.)
What about you, what’s your favorite way to deal with too many tomatoes?
Instructions to get your calendar are below.
