Sushi is about the rice. Pizza is about the crust. BLT is about the tomato. Everybody calm down.
The bacon pictured above is from Smoking Goose (thanks Carla). At the moment, this is my favorite bacon. But, again, this isn’t about the bacon. Don’t put seven slices on your BLT. Don’t brush your bread with bacon grease. Close your eyes and think of a peaceful place.
This is good bread. I made this bread. It has been slightly toasted and is standing like Stone Hinge because if I just laid them on a cutting board one side would steam. Sub-optimal.
But, this is why we are here: peak season, Gardens123 grown, hand delivered tomatoes. Thing of beauty.
