Another family recipe this week on Sunday Serving. This one comes from my step-brother's fiancee, Judy S. (I guess soon to be Judy R.!) and her family from North Jersey. A well-kept secret of New Jersey is the wonder of Jersey tomatoes (and corn and peaches!...it is the Garden State after all). This yummy recipe using garden fresh tomatoes only requires patience - 15 minutes to put together and 4-5 hours to wait while it marinates in the hot, summer sun. That's just the recipe I need this week because I think I have been struck down with strep throat so I can go back to bed while the sun does it magic. And when I wake up hours later I have a fabulous meal that just needs some crusty bread and, if my stomach can handle it, a knob of cheese. Did I mention that I got that cool glass jar from the thrift store for $2.00?! Wow, I'm a gourmet and a smart shopper!
