      Toss some nicely seasoned and shredded pork loin on that, I’d try it. Be an absolute soggy atrocity of a pizza, and I don’t know how I’d feel about the cheese factor, but on a theoretical level, this isn’t the worst idea.

        If you’ve never tried a melted slice of cheddar cheese on top of a warm slice of apple pie you really should. When my great aunt suggested it to me I was incredulous, but after I tried it I was beyond thoroughly convinced.

        Pork with apple and cheese is amazing. I usually do pork chops with apple sauce spread fairly thinly on top, and grated mature cheddar on top of that, then cook it under the grill (broil?) as usual.

        You’d have to spread the apple sauce thinly on the pizza too, but, yeah, that could work :)

    Pulled fresh off the vine, little dose of salt (garlic salt if you’re feeling froggy), and enjoy. The sun warmed fruit is quite luxurious when properly ripened. I’m particularly fond of Roma tomatoes in this fashion.

    Hear me out!

    Toast + feta + tomato + olive oil = essential

    Bonus ingredient: fresh green onion

      You’re missing chunky ground pepper and salt. Salt is amazing on tomato. Unless you’re using danish fetta or another rich fetta.

    I remember seeing a collection of Twitter posts from Americans of them being weirded out with people eating “raw tomatoes”. I guess to them if they’re not cooked they’re “raw” lol which does fit with the stereotype.

    Like firm beefsteak tomatoes or juicy hothouse tomatoes?

    Since tomatoes are so juicy inside I don’t see how one could eat them like an apple without juice going everywhere when taking a bite.

    I like the little grape sized tomatoes and will eat them as they come because the juice is contained in my mouth when I bite into it. I slice and will eat common tomatoes, with a little salt and pepper for seasoning. It is the assumed messiness that keeps me from trying to eat one like an apple.

    My mum does the same. I never understood the appeal, but… hey, it’s not like the kind of stuff that I eat is “normal” either.

        I never tasted it pickled, but it doesn’t sound offensive. And beef tongue is delicious, specially with peas and mashed potatoes. (If it wasn’t such a bother to prepare I’d gladly do it more often.)

          It’s very popular in Basque cuisine. I always get it when I go to a Basque restaurant. It’s even better when you order a side of garlic butter and slather it on the tongue.

            Now it went from “it doesn’t sound offensive” to “actually this tastes really good”. Specially because your mention of Basque cuisine reminded me that I already eat something similar, except with fish (escabeche). I’m going to try it next time that I prepare beef tongue!
