The moment of truth arrived today. I picked our first Cherokee Purple Heirloom tomato, sliced it, sprinkled a dash of salt and pepper, and was transported to culinary heaven for a few moments.
And after eating a couple slices by themselves, I created perfection between two slices of bread - the ideal BLT ... crispy bacon, fresh lettuce, and the perfect tomato.
I'll stay at home for lunch any day for this.
And don't let Heirloom tomatoes fool you - they're uglier than sin, but the taste is out of this world.
