Varying widely in size, shape, color and taste, heirloom tomatoes are quite different in appearance from common tomatoes. Most are fragile, with few seeds, meaty flesh and a thin skin. This thin skin, however, is what gives the tomato a higher sugar content and excellent flavor. Heirloom tomatoes come with more than one definition, perhaps because there are so many varieties with so much unique history. For certain, they are an open-cultivated cultivar of tomato whose seeds have been passed along from a single crop generation to another. Most importantly, what allows them to maintain the heirloom name is that no genetically modified organism can be used in their production.
Assorted Heirloom tomatoes are available during the summer months.
Rich in vitamin C, tomatoes provide a source of folate and fiber. Cholesterol-free and low in calories, one six ounce tomato contains about 26 calories.
Heirloom tomatoes are most often served fresh as simple preparation allows their intense, tomato flavor to come through. Add slices to salads or layer with basil and fresh mozzarella to make a classic Italian Caprese salad. Blend with strawberries and fresh herbs for a take on gazpacho. Slow-roast to concentrate the tomato's natural sweetness and puree into a dip with garbanzo beans and tahini. Layer in savory tarts, dice into fresh salsa or roast and add to risotto with summer vegetables such as squash and corn. Heirloom tomatoes are fragile, bruise easily, and should be used immediately upon ripening. Do not refrigerate.
