I never liked tomatoes until I tried some that were actually in season: meaty, fresh, tart yet sweet tomatoes, rather than the year-round store-bought ones that are usually mushy or fuzzy.
It just so happens that July and August are arguably the best months for tomatoes. Not only are they great for your skin in the heat of summer, but they’re also in season. We should all be cooking with and eating them as much as possible right now, especially if you don’t normally like tomatoes. Trust me, fresh in-season ones will rock your world.
