Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This southern delicacy is a family favorite and usually only available in the summer when tomatoes can be found in their infancy state. Home grown are the best and any size will do. I prefer the thickness to be on the thinner side as this lessens the cooking time and will get the tomato to the slightly translucent state faster. Be sure to make a double batch My first batch usually never made it to the table! Which I took as a compliment!
