The trick is not to store them in the fridge. Toms grow naturally in this country and are best kept at room temperature, chilling them masks the flavour. A bit of salt and pepper and some torn up basil makes the humble sandwich addition into a moveable feast in its own right.

Or at least take them out of the fridge for an hour before consuming, if poss. (Same for lettuce, cucumbers etc).
As for cherry toms - oh dear - All water and fibre .... and no 'flesh' :shake head:

Best ones are beef toms and that sweet tasting plumshaped variety, I find.

I've always used plum toms for cooking, so much better than using the tinned stuff but I don't like the idea of eating them uncooked, a bit like the thought of eating an uncooked bramley apple, it just seems wrong :ooer:

Uncooked bramleys would be too sour - unless of course you were purposely seeking something tart, which one sometimes does. :leer:
As for plum shaped toms I tried them and was pleasantly surprised - they were probably a new supersweet variety tho.
Seems shops bring out new hybrids and flavours of fruits n veg ATT.

I used to love flower sprouts, Fen got me into them. You could only get them from Waitrose and then they stopped for a year and Sainsbury took over for a season but you can't get them anywhere now, delicious steamed and tossed in butter :shake head:

Speaking of which I've only just noticed that fenella's name makes this cool smiley > :fenners:
Mine makes this happy clappy one haha> :canny: lol

Anywayyyy ..... yes, food is best nutritionally and tastewise when it's as close to its natural state as poss, with little or no cooking
Wiseguy did a thread about raw peashoots and we all laughed but some of us tried it - and loved it.

/\ /\ Ah, so he hasn't responded. Pity! :(
The lead singer in that band, who is a member of this forum, and others. (I won't bother mentioning his username but stooo knows him).
A staunchly rightwing poster, but gentle and charming ..... and a good family man who adores his wife and kids.
Probably too busy with his singing hobby to bother with forums anymore lol.

Stinging nettle tips put into boiling water briefly then eaten with braised rabbit saddle, yummy

A very old country gentleman I knew ate the nettles with rook breasts floured and fried in a little bit of salt butter.

There's a meal thread here somewhere use it. And if you think that talking about cooked rabbits and rooks will upset folks you're wrong. Man has been eating meat/poultry since almost forever. Now go wind up a clock you moronic old man

Nettles are part of the mint family but there's fuck all on a rabbit worth filleting off IMV.
