|Baked Tomatoes and herbs for Tomatoe Confit|
We had several events happening at the same time, our outreach department had their annual Back To School Blast, the children had a blast playing on the slip and slide,winning at games, eating cotton candy, and receiving new backpacks and school supplies. While the children were having fun , their parents were given the opportunity to take part in Grow Appalachia's latest class presented by Kristin Smith from the Whitley County Extension Office. The class was titled, "Preserving the taste of Summer". Kristin brought several different kinds of HeirloomTomatoes for the participants to try,
she brought, Black Cherry, Sungold, Lightbulb, and Cherry Midget tomatoes.
Some of the tomatoes were especially juicey, as I found out when I bit into one and juice squirted all over me and the four year old standing in front of me. OH BOY!, I thought I was in trouble with the four year old but he just looked at me and started laughing.
