What is gazpacho?
Gazpacho is basically cold soup. Its tomatoes mixed with spices and served cold. Traditionally, its made with tomatoes, but, gazpacho has been expanded to include any ingredient as long as its served in chill form
I have actually tried watermelon gazpacho and it was soooo good. Its definitely worth a try making it on hot summer days because the soup can make a hot day seem like a snow day!
How did gazpacho originate?
Gazpacho originated from the Andalusian region of Spain where it started out as a bread soup. When bread was going stale, the natives would turn it into a cold, liquid-y meal.
It evolved to using tomatoes and even bread in it. This is the version we have come to know and love.
Answering common questions
Yes, they can be frozen and they will retain their flavors. I put them into Ziplock bags and froze them for about a week before using them in recipes. They tasted very fresh.
I always have more blueberries than called for in the recipe. This was the first time I tested freezing them. Most of the time, I place them in paper towel and place them in a ziplock bag.
After that, I refrigerate them and use within a week. This way, the blueberry stays fresh and delicious.
