LOVE APPLES
WHY HEIRLOOM TOMATOES STEAL OUR HEARTS
By Todd Knoll
S
upermarket tomatoes may be perfectly uniform and beautifully
red in color, but they've got nothing on the lopsided wonder
of heirloom tomatoes. Bursting with flavor and available in
a kaleidoscope of brilliant colors-from flaming red to deep
purple to yellow-striped green-heirlooms are defined by their
seeds, which are passed down from season to season. Not just any seeds
will do; through careful selection, farmers save them from the best plants
each year, selecting for attributes like color, size, shape and juice content.
To say that we love heirloom tomatoes at Jordan is an understatement.
We normally grow around 25 different varieties in our Estate Garden-
they're a beloved staple of our annual Harvest Lunch buffet-but last year,
we couldn't resist ramping it up to 40. This bounty gives us a wonderful
palette of colors, textures and tastes to work with in creating summer and
fall salads, consomm├ęs and sauces. Baker Creek Seed Company and local
tomato gurus are my favorite sources for new seeds each spring.
I love the brandywine variety, but my mouth waters at the thought of
the brightly acidic green zebra. For flavor in salads, I really like using red
currant tomatoes, because they're like tiny jewels. With the flavor and
ripening diversity of heirloom tomato varieties available today in Sonoma
County, we can use fresh tomatoes in our cooking from June through
early November.
For an identification list of these heirloom tomatoes and other favorites,
