Panzanella salad

Panzanella salad

Last summer I fermented a large batch of cherry tomatoes.They were nothing like what I expected. They were bubbly and fizzy and they danced around in the jar. They popped when you placed them in your mouth. Super easy and oh so good! Tomatoes are a super food. One of the best. Even your skin benefits when you eat tomatoes. Lycopene has been scientifically proven to help protect your skin from sun damage. Not only that, but people who eat the most were shown to have 33% more protection from sunburns.
The high content of vitamin C in tomatoes means that you have added protection against viruses. Vitamin C is also an essential component in healing of cuts and injuries. So eat your tomatoes and here is a great recipe to do just that!

    Seal the jar and let it sit on your kitchen counter, out of direct sunlight, for 4 days.
  5. Check the tomatoes every day to make sure they are fully submerged in the water. If they have risen above the water, simply push them down so they are fully covered by the water. If any mold formed because the tomatoes rose above the water, do not worry. Remember, this isn’t harmful. Just scoop out the moldy tomatoes and push the rest back under the water. Don't worry if you can't keep them submerged. These tend to really float and will do fine.
