Whilst the Granny brigade advocate that tomatoes cause Gout, the rest of the world`s nutritional experts say that tomatoes are the best health food in existence. They are apparently a miracle  food in helping to prevent Prostate Cancer and provide benefit against a whole load of other ailments, plus supplying the body with vitamins for a healthy lifestyle. 

 

So, stuff yourself with tomatoes and die of old age..

A tomato picked right off the vine. Sliced and slapped between 2 pieces of bread. Heaven on earth.

Or a thick slice of COLD tomato on a hot buttered biscuit. And there is always the every popular BLT. (for me minus the lettuce and adding swiss cheese)

Or cold sliced tomatoes as a side dish.

Tomato gravy is also excellent.

And the best one of all: fried to perfection green tomatoes.

Fresh home grown tomato, garlic, basil and oil on top of toasted ciabatta. Pinch of salt and pepper. Now that's heaven.

 

Tomato and red onion salad is also to die for. Speaking of which, I'm a bit worried about the patriot's statistic :wink:

Kai,

 

A 100% of people who do not eat tomatoes also die. Perhaps a lot earlier than the tomato munchers.

The English word tomato comes from the Spanish word, tomate, derived Nahuatl (Aztec language) word, tomatl. It first appeared in print in 1595. A member of the deadly nightshade family, tomatoes were erroneously thought to be poisonous (although the leaves are poisonous) by Europeans who were suspicious of their bright, shiny fruit. Native versions were small, like cherry tomatoes, and most likely yellow rather than red.

The tomato is native to western South America and Central America. In 1519, Cortez discovered tomatoes growing in Montezuma's gardens and brought seeds back to Europe where they were planted as ornamental curiosities, but not eaten.
 

Eat the fruit but not the leaves. Or as patriot suggests you may become one of the 100%.

newbleeping, I'm a redneck Southern United States country girl born, raised, and still live in Alabama. And while I love the foods I grew up on I do also love a good bruschetta.

Kaluk, that sounds like something I do with tomatoes but I don't normally put them on bread. I season up thick slices, drizzle olive oil on them, put on various herbs, parmesan and/or romano cheese (which I grate myself because the parmesan/romano cheese-from-a-can is yucky tasting) and stick 'em under the broiler for a few minutes.

Queen Evie,I just knew that had to ignite your taste buds!   Hey,since everybody has something to share about "tomatoes" does anyone know where the expression "she's a real hot tomatoe" came from to describe an attractive gal...I believe it came about in the '50s.....(lol)I just can't see the similarity?,,,,newbleeping :notme:

"A real hot tomato", sounds like it comes from the bright red colour and the heat needed to ripen them off. Making a really attractive and yummy proposition.
