The average fruit or vegetable travels 1,500-2,000 miles to reach most grocery stores in New England, losing flavor and freshness along the way. But now all that has changed. Maine greenhouse company, Backyard Farms, a local purveyor of fresh, vine-ripened tomatoes is bringing its Backyard Beauties to local markets throughout New England.
- 2 backyard farm tomatoes, sliced
- 2 tablespoons curry powder
- 2 tablespoons plain flour
- 4 tablespoons olive oil
- 14 ounces Greek yogurt
- 6 tablespoons chopped of fresh mint
- 4 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
