Organic tomatoes, salt
The tomato is native to the Andes in South America where one can still find wild plants today. The tomato was introduced to Latin America and Mexico over 2000 years ago by the natural elements and the migration of populations and from that point forward, it was widely consumed in Mexico and in Spain.
Try adding a sun-dried tomato pesto to your lunchtime sandwich, or to your bruschetta recipe. You can also make small savoury muffins with garlic, herbs and dried tomatoes as an appetizer to impress your guests. Sun-dried tomatoes are a delicious addition to vinaigrette softened in olive oil which is then placed in a blender with balsamic vinegar and herbs.
Can be preserved in a cool, dry cupboard protected from light and humidity for up to 12 months.
The tomato was introduced in Spain in the 16th century but it took another two centuries before the tomato was given a spot in cookbooks around the world! It was the tomato’s similarity with another poisonous plant that did not inspire much confidence until the poisonous myth was debunked in the 18th century.
