Tomato, Tomahto? — Just let me eat it!

Tomatoes 1

I have been playing with my food, again. If I can’t eat it, how else can I enjoy it? I recently found some really nice tomatoes in the local market. They are supposedly local (In Maryland, in January?). They do have nice flavor. They’re pretty to look at, too.

The SP Purification Program Guide includes tomatoes on its list of fruits. The SP Purification Guide is wrong! In 1893, the US Supreme Court declared, “Botanically speaking, tomatoes are the fruit of a vine, just as are cucumbers, squashes, beans, and peas. But in the common language of the people, whether sellers or consumers of provisions, all these are vegetables which are grown in kitchen gardens, and which, whether eaten cooked or raw, are, like potatoes, carrots, parsnips, turnips, beets, cauliflower, cabbage, celery, and lettuce, usually served at dinner in, with, or after the soup, fish, or meats which constitute the principal part of the repast, and not, like fruits generally, as dessert.”

According to the Supreme Court, tomatoes are vegetables, which means I can eat twice as many tomatoes as I could when they were fruit! Now, ain’t that special!!
