Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: No cooking required

Tomato Water tastes like concentrated summer garden in a sip. So, what is Tomato Water is the flavorful, fragrant liquid that releases from ripe tomatoes when they're cut. So, the stuff that ends up all over your cutting board when you're slicing tomatoes. Which is such a waste really, because it has SO much flavor. Use it to make cocktails, flavorful sparkling water, dressings, pasta and more.

Ingredients

  • 4 large fresh tomatoes or 5-7 medium

    1 teaspoon sea salt

Preparation

  • Set a fine-mesh strainer over a large bowl, and line the strainer with cheesecloth.
    Add the tomato water ingredients to a blender or food processor, and pulse until pulpy or finely chopped. (You may need to cut the tomatoes or in large chunks to get it next to the blade. If you do, make sure to pour any extra juice in with them!)
    Pour the mixture into the prepared strainer, and refrigerate for at least 8 hours, or up to a day.
    Tip: for clear tomato water, don’t press or stir the pulp.
    Keep in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

    A favorite application for Tomato Water is, by far, the Farmers Market cocktail. It's like a wine-based Bloody Mary, and it might be my favorite libation ever.
    Mix 5 ounces California Pinot Noir,Gamay, Cinsault, Grenache, Counoise
    with 3 ounces tomato water. Add
    Dash of sea salt, and Ice. Garnish with: tomato + basil + fresh mozzarella on toothpick
    *make a “Spicy Farmers Market” by adding 3 slices of fresh jalapeno or serrano pepper.

    You can double this recipe if you have a bowl + strainer big enough. You can add fresh herbs or peppers or even an onion. It's your tomato goodness, after all. Once you try it, I'm pretty sure you'll be making it again.

    You can also use the water to make a more traditional Bloody Mary with vodka, use it in vinaigrette + salad dressing for knockout flavor, or use it in place of vegetable stock.
    You can make Tomato Sorbet. You can even drink it by itself, which is what I often do. Sometimes with a little ice and a squeeze of lemon or a splash of club soda. Sometimes straight - no chaser.
