Good to know about the Israeli feta, Karen.
What are Kumato tomatoes?
Carrie, here is a Wiki link for your answer.
In the winter, when one cannot get summer tomatoes, these fit the bill and quite well. Another choice is Campari, a smaller tomato with a fairly good taste. When I can't find either, the sugar plum, a tiny oval tomato is OK for salads. I often roast these to intensify the flavor and use them for snacking. Trader Joe's has Kumato now and then as do local supermarkets. I look for them every time I go....all winter long. I love Trader Joe's potted herbs too. Last year I started a couple of plants from my own sweet basil and held them in my kitchen window all winter. Planted them back into my herb garden in the late spring and they grew so huge it was unreal. This year I forgot to get some starts from my basil before it froze. But I do have a pot of rosemary, thyme and marjoram at my kitchen window to snip from this winter. It is so handy to have a few herbs growing in the kitchen. My herb garden is on the back part of our property and sometimes I don't want to walk out there in the rain, or I just get lazy.
Thanks Karen. Yes, I have had those -- from TJs. Didn't know that's what they were called. This time of year, I typically buy the Campari's from Costco.
Oh, and you mentioned the Israeli Feta, they also have Greek Feta in brine that is excellent. I have been chipping away at a container of it in my fridge for the past two weeks.
