Sweeten The Flavor In Fresh Tomatoes With A Simple Pairing
Tomatoes contain a considerable amount of acidity and sweetness, and to unlock the full potential of these flavors, try pairing them with a few stalks of rhubarb.
Pairing a ripe tomato with something tart and acidic like rhubarb is a great way to create balance, since a too-sweet tomato lacks the sourness needed to give it structure.
Despite the fact that rhubarb's sourness fades slightly when cooked to reveal a subtle sweetness, it draws attention to a tomato's nuances with some much-needed astringency.
Try adding chunks of simmered rhubarb into savory tomato chutneys and jellies, or incorporate rhubarb into tomato-based dressings like ketchup or barbecue sauce.
