Unbelievable weather in Kent over the past few days. My San Marzano and Principe Borghese tomatoes which I rashly decided to try growing outdoors this year, have been putting on a great ripening spurt. The Principe Borghese are delicious with a very distinctively pointy bottom.
The San Marzano I’ve been oven-drying at a very low heat – about 140C – for nearly an hour, with a little thyme and olive oil sprinkled over the top. I intend to use them as a base for a pasta dish, but the first batch I did proved too tempting and I ate them just as they were with bread. If I can resist it next time I’ll post up the recipe!
