I love quotes that add meaning to my life. Here are a few to live by:

Avoid food products containing ingredients that a third-grader cannot pronounce.
—Michael Pollan

Feeding nine billion people in a truly sustainable way will be one of the greatest challenges our civilization has had to confront. It will require the imagination, determination and hard work of countless people from all over the world. There is no time to lose.
—Jonathan A. Foley, director of the Institute on the Environment, U of MN

The surest way to capture the flavors, colors, and textures of a culture is by using authentic products.
—Lidia Bastianich, from Lidia’s Italian-American Kitchen

The most important habit you can develop is to taste as you are preparing something. Take a sample and taste it critically at different stages of the cooking, then correct the seasonings…
—Marion Cunningham, from Learning to Cook

Plant a vegetable garden if you have the space, a window box if you don’t.
—Michael Pollan

Cedar Circle Farm’s 2012 Heirloom Tomato Guide

 

Some of the heirloom tomato varieties grown at Cedar Circle Farm

Here’s an excellent heirloom tomato guide given to me by the folks at Cedar Circle Farm in East Thetford, VT, where I discovered a new tomato variety called Cherokee Green. It has a wonderful lemony but rich tomato flavor. Come spring I’ll look for these to plant in my garden as they are delicious. Just when you think you know a fruit or vegetable there are always exciting varieties, old and new, to learn about!

Pink Brandywine: Large dark pink beefsteak tomatoes and potato leaf type plants. Brandywines have a balanced and rich flavor. 

Green Zebra: Medium-sized fruit with brightly striped skin with a bright, almost citrus-like flavor. They are ripe when green and add color to any plate.

Red Zebra:Red and yellow-streaked skin with a traditional flavor.

White Zebra: When ripe , creamy white with yellow stripes. They are mild and have a thick testure that makes them perfect for soups and sauces.

German Lunchbox: A tomato tough enough to bring to work in your lunchbox! They have a deep pink color and a flavor that is more similar to a paste tomato then any of the other heirlooms.

Cherokee Green: A recent variety developed from the popular Cherokee Purple. Beautiful green and yellow flesh resembles emeralds.

Persimmon: An ox-heart-shaped heirloom with a bright balanced flavor and a lovely texture. 

Striped German: A large bi-colored beefsteak with a beautiful display of color inside. 

Black Seaman: Deep chocolate color and dark purple flesh with a wonderful savory taste. Delicious with a little bit of sea salt!

Wapsipinicon Peach: Easier to eat then to say, these delicious fuzzy tomatoes are sweet and fresh in flavor. Perfect for a salad.

Violet Jasper: A chinese heirloom with a thick skin striped gold and purple.

Indigo Rose: The darkest-colored tomato. These are rich in anti-oxidants with an unusual, spicy flavor and plum-like flesh.

Egg Yolks: Small, round fruit with a deeper flavor then a cherry tomato.
