Author Notes: Our neighbors next door have a great vegetable garden. This year, they generously lent us one of their raised beds. We planted tomatoes, eggplant, basil, oregano, rosemary, and a few jalapeno plants. The jalapenos are especially prolific and keep producing fruit like crazy. We’ve been putting them in everything, and giving away lots, too.

I like to dip fries in this aioli. It also makes a honkin’ tomato sandwich like nobody’s business.
