Once ya stick them in the fridge, they'll taste like the ones you get in the middle of the winter... Tasteless.
If you want to extend your season indoors for a few weeks, pick a bunch of green ones. Place a few in a paper bag (to trap the gasses) and they'll quickly ripen.

Home grown tomatoes are good any way one wants to eat them. I usually just slice a couple for our dinner in place of salad or other vegetable. But love tomato sandwiches, done a myriad of ways, broiled tomatoes, fresh tomato sauce for pasta, etc. Just wish it were possible to have great tasting tomatoes year 'round. They are such a treat.

White bread, thick slice of tomato, salt, pepper...ton of mayo (Hellman's of course)...occasionally a nice thin slice of Vidalia onion.

Time to head to the farmer's market!

It's a sweet onion from Texas. They're bred for seeding on Oct 15.

Thanks for the advice, UncleVic --- I have an abundance of green tomatoes and I sure don't want them to go to waste.

On Wonder bread with lots of Miracle Whip...absolutely fabulous. Does anyone remember the movie Harriet the Spy? Her favorite sandwich was tomato with mayo.

Hello All,
Ashd8516, welcome to Roadfood.
I have a tomato sandwich at least once a day. I am finding I like a more grainy bread as I get older.
And more salt. I know that is bad, but tomato and salt are so sweet.
Take Care,
Fieldthistle

Ha ha I haven't seen the movie, but I remember the books from childhood! They would be fun to read again. And yes, she did love tomato sandwiches!

Fresh white bread, thick sliced red ripe tomato, lots of JFG mayo, salt and pepper!!! Boy howdy, that's a good sandwich!

(Tomato must be room temperature, never refrigerated!!!)

Hey Buckshot ------------What is JFG mayo? Can't be better than Hellmans or Best. Use one of them and then you can say "Boy,howdy,that's a GREAT sandwich.

russ2304,

JFG mayo is from JFG Coffee Company, which originated in 1882 in Knoxville, TN. I grew up in East Tennessee eating JFG peanut butter, mayo and later drinking JFG coffee. I've tried every mayo known to man, but my favorite is still JFG. My mom sends me four quart jars of mayo every so often since I now live in Texas. JFG products were regional, and they are still available in East Tennessee. JFG stands for J. Frank Goodson, the company founder. Yep, it's better than Hellmans.

Totally agree with not putting tomatoes in the fridge--its like eating ice cold cheese...no flavor.

Good bread (e.g., Pepperidge Farm's Dark German Wheat), thick slices of tomato, fresh pepper, salt and KRAFT mayo. (I don't care for Hellman's texture or flavor.)

I totally agree: I am a native of Knoxville and I have enjoyed the aroma of coffee roasting in downtown Knoxvillle for better than 60 years.

Their quality of taste is super. Most folks our of Knoxville will not recoginize the brand.

And the other truly acceptable mayonnaise is Duke's. Last week when we went to NC I picked up 3 quart jars at a Food Lion in Hatteras. Living in the midwest is great except for the lack of fresh seafood and Duke's mayo. But once a year I stock up, so we're fine.
