*A note on heirloom tomatoes:
The popularity of these old fashioned tomatoes has increased among hostesses in recent years due to their refreshing flavor, texture, and crazy colors, and also because of their historic origins. To be certified heirloom, these tomatoes have to be grown from seed that has produced the same variety of tomato for at least fifty years, and they must be certified organic by a recognized USDA organization.
Heirloom tomato seeds have been handed down from generations of tomato growers whose love of these tomatoes has been shared with their neighbors and communities. Their titles tell the tale of their origins and the farmers who have grown them. Varieties such as Cherokee Purple, Great White, Green Zebra, Nebraska Wedding, and Snow White Cherry are sweetly juicy served on in recipes like the one below, or just drizzled with olive oil and salt and pepper in a savory summery salad. I’m running out to buy my heirloom tomatoes NOW!
