I always enjoy trying various Heirloom varieties and this year the Black Krim is happily growing in my little plot. I am also growing two other fun varieties: 1) Dr. Carolyn which is a cherry size in bright yellow and is described as “It has an excellent balance of sugar, tartness and depth of flavor. The pale yellow, cherry-sized fruits are typically borne 6 to a cluster with fruits of uniform size measuring 1-1/4" x 1-1/4". The large vines are extremely vigorous, well branched, and provide excellent cover”
and 2) Anna’s Noir described as “Also known as Black Pineapple, the skin has shades of green, purple, orange, and yellow. Bright green flesh has bursts of red streaks that will definitely add intrigue to your vegetable platter. The lip smacking flavor starts out sweet and ends with the perfect amount of tang. What's more, the sprawling indeterminate plant yields a tremendous amount of 1 1/2 pound fruits.”
If you want to try some tomatoes this year, I have a few fun varieties in the Corner Store HERE.
But, for today I thought I would share these lovely vintage tomato recipes fit for the summer. Some are even good for those vintage loving people who are also vegetarians. Enjoy:
I have been rather busy, as many of you know, preparing my home for sale, having yard sales to drastically downsize my possessions and planning for our future. Therefore I had set aside the daily vintage news for a bit. However, I do think it was fun to do and though I am not sure how many of you enjoyed it, I will be trying to do it daily. I will now have a link button there on the right, as opposed to having at the bottom of the blog. This will allow you to click and go straight to it. This also allows me more design freedom in this format. Have a lovely day and as always, Happy Homemaking!
