“A few years ago, I bought a jar of smoked tomatoes at a market in Queensland. They were expensive, but wonderful. I remember using them sparingly and constantly smelling my fingers afterwards until the delicious smoky aroma had gone. Russ just bought me a smoker so I’m keen to try this recipe I found on the net. According to the blurb, these smoky tomatoes give a depth of flavor to all kinds of vinaigrettes, sauces, salsas and soups.”
