Interesting Fact: Did you know that tomato is thought to have originated in Peru? In fact the word tomato is believed to be derived from the ancient Aztec word ‘xitomatl’, which means ‘plump thing with a navel’, which is a good description of the tomato fruits. During the medieval period, up until the late 18th century, the tomato was believed to be a poisonous plant. The fact that the tomato comes from the same plant family as Deadly Nightshade, Henbane and Belladonna didn’t help its cause, and it wasn’t until the late 18th century that the tomato lost its poisonous image in Europe and began to become an everyday culinary item.
Ingredients: Dried flakes of Solanum lycopersicum.
