In my first weekend here, I was invited to a tea. I baked a babka (actually, I twisted a chocolate babka dough and a cinnamon babka dough together, so it was a twofer) to bring; had a lovely afternoon chatting about my new employer, gardening, and greening efforts on campus; and was offered some delicious cherry tomatoes from an organic grocer in what's-considered-to-be-nearby Jeddah.
I used some in an omelette a few days ago and more in some pasta I made this evening. I have a few more left, but those I'll probably pop right into my mouth when I want a juicy, refreshing, flavourful snack. These black cherry tomatoes are incredibly yummy, and hard to describe. Not quite smokey and deep, not only sweet and tart, kind of all of the above at the same time. I couldn't find any named varieties of black cherry tomato--they're all just called "black cherry tomato." So I squeezed out some seed to save, and I'll grow a few plants on the patio here!
