Choice Ingredient

We recommend using heirloom tomatoes, which are grown from the seeds of old-fashioned varieties, because of their full-bodied flavor and dazzling palette of colors. They vary from red to yellow and from green to purplish black. Look for them at farmers' markets during the summer months.
