Field to Table: Heirloom Tomatoes

Blight hardly a takes a bite. Only one instance reported to date and heiroom tomatoes everywhere this weekend! Try some from Kitchen Garden of Sunderland. They can be purchased at Greenfield Farmers' Market on Saturday morning. Other sources for heirlooms include Chez Albert Restaurants, the Amherst and Northampton's Farmers' Markets and directly at farmstands. Kitchen Garden put over 50 different varieties of heirlooms in the ground. They are best eaten on their own but some are canning them. Imagine heirloom tomato sauce in February and then then put aside a good day or so to heat the jars and preserve the summer.
