Ask Mary: Should I Give Heirlooms a Try?

Ask Mary: Should I Give Heirlooms a Try?

Hi Mary,
I am not really a fan of tomatoes but everyone keeps saying that heirlooms are worth trying. My main concern? Their price. What do you think?

Sometimes at farmers markets they will give you a taste to encourage you to buy what they are selling, so that’s one way to find out if you like these incredible fruits. I think that heirloom tomatoes are the magnum of tomatoes. They are indeed a little pricey, but if you buy one and toss it with a little salt, pepper, good olive oil and a delicious fresh mozzarella, you will find yourself extremely satisfied with the flavor and forget all about the price. Let me know how it goes!

Happy Cooking!
