I have a packet of 4 brown tomatos. I guess its a new variety introduce sometime last year. Has anyone had them? Are they sweet or more savory, bitter, etc.
Wondering what to do with them. Yes I could just cut one and taste but they are medium size and dont want to waste anything.
Where did you buy them? They sound more like an heirloom variety -- some of the heirloom yellows look almost brownish/tannish.
Bought at a "international market". Has alot of imports, and large variety of exotic produce. This is a tomato that I guess was breed to be brown. It has the color of some heirlooms I have seen. But the shape is almost perfectly round.
They are supposed to be from the heirloom family, and sweeter from what was told here. Kind of common here but they say it is more from the Spanish Mediterranean.
I've had them in Caprese salads and baked warm at this 3 star Michelin rated place near here.The restaurant that uses them was in this recipe
slice tomatoes into slices and half, arrange on olive oil in the glass baking tray, Drizzle honey over the arranged slices & sprinkle with ground coriander seeds, sea salt, black pepper minced garlic, pour more olive oil on it. Bake on low heat for 2/3 hours. Sprinkle with fresh chopped parsley. Serve on top of baguettes sliced and toasted with crumbled goat cheese.
Mmmmm...bet it would also be good with fresh mozzarella and basil leaves and dill fronds.
