Heirloom Tomatoes

heirloomtomatoes

I heart tomatoes. These beauties are from the Santa Monica Farmer's Market - the big tomato stand. So juicy and perfect with a sprinkling of fleur de sel, torn basil & a drizzle of fruity olive oil. The orange one in the front is the Pineapple variety and the greenish-red one is Brandywine Black. There is even a Persimmon variety hanging out on the top left.

A simple heirloom tomato salad makes for a beautiful and delicious dish, even as part of a tv dinner.

do they taste super-tomatoey? does that make sense to you? i prefer stewed or sauteed tomatoes... raw ones are hard for me to eat.

yoony said...

hmm super-tomatoey?? i think tomato paste is super-tomatoey. these fresh heirloom ones are just juicy and sweet.

"Yes I know they're heirlooms, but I was asking what TYPE of heirlooms...?" (Duh!)
