Do you have a favorite heirloom tomato?

Tida | Jul 24, 2002 12:34 AM

In an earlier post, I had mentioned going to the farmers market and buying up all the Black Prince tomatoes I could find. I adore these tomatoes. My tastes run toward savory items. I was surprised when a farmer told me that these tomatoes kind of taste like bacon. Is that possible?!? And indeed they do. Little bit of smokiness and BACON(!) This is such a nice tomato to have with a BLT made with 2 slices of thick cut toasted artisan bread, Niman Ranch bacon, organic greens, and a smidge of homemade mayo! MMMM!
