Madeira tomato

Standard

Hi,

As usual during the holidays I decided to taste something new. While shopping in one of the supermarkets I immediately got interested in so called “English tomatoes”. I’ve never eaten such tomatoes’ before…

I decided to try them out….

My first impression… they look beautiful and don’t really look like tomatoes. They can easily substitute fruits. If you half them, the inner side looks a bit like maracuja (passion fruit)… black seeds, juicy. They taste something in between “normal” tomatoes and fruits. Sweet, sour-  I can’t decide.

Here’s my idea of eating this tomato… I decided to eat it in sweet version, together with natural yoghurt and honey.

Know-how:

  2. Mix with natural yoghurt and honey

Voila…
