This Week’s Veggie Unearthed: Sungold Tomatoes
Your Sungold tomatoes came to us from The Family Garden in Bell, Florida – less than 100 miles from most of our customers’ homes.
These astonishingly sweet, yellow-gold cherry tomatoes are difficult to keep around! Our emphasis is always on experimentation and quality for the home cook, but these little guys might not even make it into a pan once you’ve tasted them. Sweet as candy, they make a great addition to any salad or raw preparation, or they can be used as you would any cherry tomato of exceptional flavor.
If your Sungolds should manage to survive the night without being raided by your spouse or other home-dwelling predators, please do not store them in your refrigerator. Refrigeration will rob them of their flavor! Your Sungolds are only briefly chilled after bin assembly to prevent spoilage of other items in the bin. Store them for 2-4 days out of direct sunlight at room temperature below 80 degrees for best flavor. Or, you could just eat them all before anyone sees them and say, “What tomatoes?” Don’t dribble on your shirt though. That gives you away.
If you’d like to see how to make a simple sauce with Sungold tomatoes, please watch this helpful video.
