Does anyone else notice that cherry tomatoes don't go bad as fast as Roma's or other types? (Kept out of fridge, of course).

That consistently happens for me.

White or red radish? I rarely see the white ones anymore. Seems the white ones were hotter?

That sounds like an excellent idea. I will do this next time I make slaw.

Put them where? In coleslaw?

They were mostly red but some were the 'icicle' type white ones but the larger ones were usually hotter, of both types.

I think the hotness has been taken out of radishes now, much to my chagrin, in keeping with the general tendency to 'white bread' a lot of food to match the taste of more people.

I'm not 'white bread'.

Me too, more of a "pumpernickel rye with caraway".

Me neither. Imagine my shock when I bought chillies here in the 'burbs. They had no heat! The jalapenos had no heat, the long ones had no heat, and the Scotch bonnets were very mild.

I found out that I have to buy hot peppers at the ethnic stores or at Mourelatos, my sorta ethnic (several flavours) Greek supermarket.

They are dead easy to grow at home - even I can't kill them. "French Breakfast" are a good variety to try and they can be grown in pots if you don't have garden space.

Good white bread is worth eating. Try some from what is now called an "artisan" baker.

I was talking about the white bread that's called Balloon Bread. But that's the ONLY kind I like for a bologna sandwich with yellow mustard a la my childhood.

But speaking of bread as a fine food---- nothing beats Boudin's sourdough in San Francisco!

San Francisco Sourdough Rounds (2) #840 €“ Boudin Bakery Online Store

We used to have some shipped to us after we moved away------ but it's too expensive now. (Or maybe........hmmmm? Birthday present wish list?)

p.s.---- bound to have some dissenters about this. LOL

Yes, same with grape tomatoes. They do last longer.

Roll Bones, I think Sophia meant that she doesn't put tomatoes in the fridge, not that she doesn't put radishes in cole slaw.... I was a little confused at first, too. But I could be wrong. lol
