BLT-ini: Tomato Water and Random Things
Hey, guess what? It takes a lot of tomatoes to make tomato water. Here’s a lovely picture of the effort. It’s about 10 Roma and two big beefsteak organic tomatoes. You purée them in a food processor with a pinch of salt, then strain them overnight in cheesecloth (if you're a fancy pants) or coffee filters, if you is a common sorta folk. I know, it’s sacrilege to make tomato water with nasty out-of-season tomatoes…what can I do? The BLT-ini experiment demands tomato water. Here’s what I’m putting in the drink: tomato water, bacon vodka, endive leaf. Maybe a frozen cherry tomato or a bacon curl on the rim…we’ll see.
