They are often misshapen, but that has no bearing on its taste. They grow so many gorgeous-fun-superb tasting varietals like Black Plum heirloom tomatoes whose brownish-gray fruits are so sweet and meaty and perfect for salads; or black Vernissage heirloom tomatoes which are not actually black but a deep mahogany and striped with green loaded with juicy and tangy flavor.
They have been supplying heirloom tomatoes for Pot Roast & Pinot’s well received new permanent menu item Blue Crab Heirloom Tomato Caprese. We’re fortunate to have the dish year round do to Jim’s outfitting of a hoophouse to create a heirloom tomato paradise grown naturally with no chemicals and no pesticides.
We take a variety of Crescere Farms heirloom tomatoes and slice them, arrange the slices on a plate and drizzle cold pressed olive oil over them. Put a ball of fresh burrata cheese on top and two ounces of blue lump crab next to it and finish off with fresh basil, sea salt and fresh ground pepper. Each plate is uniquely designed as no two can be the same due to the variety and shapes of the heirloom tomatoes.
