It’s only two years old, but this is one of my favorite tomato strips. Speaking of tomatoes as we have been, I come from a family of peelers. I’ve found that this is one of those things, one of those Big Questions that divides humanity one way or the other. Those who peel tomatoes and those who don’t. My mother always peeled our tomatoes, whether for sandwiches, for burgers or to be eaten alone. Of course, I grew up true to my upbringing. I was a dedicated peeler. However, I’ve become intellectually aware of all that good fiber and nutrition that would be going into the trash, and I no longer peel my tomatoes as a rule. However, that does not mean I am not a peeler at heart, and I do backslide on occasion, especially for tomato sandwiches.
