For those who love small streams, wild trout, and life...in their simplest form
Thursday, August 16, 2012
A bounty takes place this time of year, and a special farm seen pictured here brings this native bounty to the plate. It has a rich history in this small town of Newington, Connecticut both as a dairy farm and now a producer of vegetables. Most people in town know Eddy Farm for their sweet corn, I know it for their tomatoes.
They also raise many other veggies, and most are picked fresh daily.
Small local family farms we need to support them, for that taste can only come from them.
Being Italian my love of the tomato is second only to the brook trout. And while the tomato can be enjoyed countless ways my absolute favorite is like this. Cut, tossed with olive oil with salt and pepper. Serve with crusty garlic bread...... Simplicity.
There is another true Connecticut native. He's been here for years. While he is not cultivated, but a wild native. He lives in a most beautiful place, fresh clear cold tumbling waters.....Simplicity.
