According to the Rules of the Interwebs, you shouldn’t post someone else’s entire recipe, only part of it with a link to the rest, unless you’ve changed the recipe up bigtime.
Treat the Earth and its people with respect! If you go with canned tomatoes look for Certified Organic brands like Eden Organic or Muir Glen. In the produce section look for fresh tomatoes labeled Certified Organic from Fair Trade Certified growers like Del Cabo, Divine Flavor, Master’s Touch, Signature Brand or Wholesum, or buy from stores like Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s that have signed on to the Campaign for Fair Food.
What’s your fave way to eat tomatoes…green and fried? Stuffed? On a kabob? Sprinkled with sugar? Do you grown your own? Do you look for organic and fair trade labels when you shop? 🙂
