Enter Our Latest Contest: Your Best Fresh Tomato Showstopper

August 22, 2016

There's still time to enter your tomato-iest recipes! Head over to the contest page to submit your recipes before 6 P.M. E.S.T. tomorrow, Tuesday, August 23rd.

Many will tell you that fresh tomatoes need nothing at all to be perfect. Maybe a sprinkle of salt. Maybe a piece of toast and a swipe of mayonnaise. If you insist on doing something other than bite into the fruit like an apple, that is.

But we're a bunch of shameless lily-gilders around here. Yes, a tomato is wonderful—even perfect—with some salt or on toast. But what about stuffed tomatoes? Tomato pie? Tomatoes roasted until they pop, or until they melt down to jam? Tomatoes splashed with browned butter? What about them?

Maybe we're meddlers, or maybe we're onto something. We bet you are, too. So for our latest contest, show us how you turn fresh tomatoes into something even better than their original form.
