Beefsteak Tomato

beefsteak_tomato_transBeefsteak tomatoes are the largest of the tomato cultivars – some weighing up to a pound. In the 1890′s beefsteaks were bred by Johann Muster on his farm in Marathon NY. His triumph earned him honors from President Grover Cleveland.

Preparation Tips

Tomatoes are best sliced with a serrated (or super-sharp) knife. To de-seed, slice through the meridian and gently squeeze out juice and seeds. To peel, make a few superficial slices in the skin, toss in boiling water for 30 seconds, drain, cool, and peel.

Storage Tips

Tomatoes are best ripened at room temperature and held in the fridge once desired ripeness as been attained. Then they keep in the fridge for 2–3 days.
