Look! Crazy Heirloom Tomatoes

I picked up these crazy heirloom Pineapple tomatoes this Sunday at the farmers’ market. The woman who sold them to me thought I was nuts for picking them.

Question is, what to do with three small crazy tomatoes? They’re probably the last I’ll have for a while… I’ll get a few nibbles, and then, back to New York where it will be months, literally, before I lay hands on a fresh, local love apple again.

In the meantime, for the majority of you without access to fresh, ripe, local tomatoes in February, here are a few posts to get you dreaming:
