I ran out to Clear Brook Farm at lunch today in search of plum tomatoes for the gazpacho I’m planning to make for dinner tonight. I thought for sure Clear Brook had opened its produce stand last weekend, while my summer cold rendered me bed-ridden. The farm stand usually opens at the beginning of June. I was pleasantly surprised to see a sign that said the produce stand would open this Friday and that I hadn’t missed the opening day (it’s something I look forward to every year), but alas, I didn’t get my tomatoes.
Anyone have a recipe for gazpacho that calls for canned tomatoes? I was planning to follow the gazpacho recipe in The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook. That cookbook has not once failed me.
