I have a challenging relationship with tomatoes. I make a semi-famous tomato sauce from scratch, I love tomato soup, they are vital in my chutneys and I make a mean fresh tomato salsa. I just can't eat them raw. Or resembling a tomato. True factoid. I have tried. One year I grew 12 varieties determined to like at least one. I had an open mind and a clean palette. Nope. Just ain't my thing. The weird thing is that I recently found out they were my first solid food. Pretty full-on first food! Apparently I liked them back then. Whatever. I still love the look of them ripening on the vine. Just not on my plate.
