Dry whole branches on a pan in a 150-200 degree F oven for about 1-1/2 to 2 hours. To remove the leaves, all you need to do is “squish” the branches with your hand and the leaves will drop into the pan.

Here is the tomato I am entering in an Ugly Tomato Contest:
I harvested Big Ug last night:
Now I know that I have seen uglier tomatoes, but what want to show with this entry is how “ugly” does not mean inedible. As soon as I finish posting this and emailing my tomato photos to the cool folks at Soulsby Farm, I am sitting down and eating Big Ug with a freshly brewed glass of iced coffee.* An organically-grown, heirloom tomato is way more delicious than some GMO corporate “perfect” non-warty fake food “tomato.” Any day! You don’t even have to grow your own as there are some “imperfect” fabulous fruits and vegetables waiting for you at your local farmers market. What could be more beautiful than eating food that nourishes the earth and supports a real farm instead of a corporate factory, right?
Compost the warts and then dig in!
