FARM STAND TOMATO SERVING SUGGESTIONS

Don’t be surprised to see customers eat them on the spot at the farmers market; just the way Mother Nature hands them to you…we pick them ripe, off the vine to be eaten like an apple.


Heirlooms

Best eaten raw with Olive Oil. Drizzle with the best balsamic vinegar & fresh basil leaves.

Red Beefsteaks & Saladettes

Try peeling them without the hot water blanching. Removing the skin barrier unveils even more tomato flavor. Great to slice with sandwiches, salads & burgers or just plain with mayonnaise, salt & pepper or with cottage cheese.
