Ah, wintertime in the Great Lakes – nothing much is growing here except the icicles hanging from the eaves. On the gloomy days, there’s nothing better than a taste of summer. If you canned or froze produce, terrific. But what if you did not? Extra baked tomatoes are the answer.
Look for a tomato that smells like a tomato, because if there’s no smell, there won’t be much taste either.
If you can find ripe tomatoes on the vine (typically these are hydroponic tomatoes) they’re a great place to start.
