Common Name: Organic Yellow Tomatoes
Location Grown: IL (one of 50 local farms)
Obtained From: Fresh Picks (delivered right to my door)
Use: Tomato sauce

Other:  There are so many seeds in each tomato.  I do not know if beefsteaks are hybrid (gotta check that), but I suspect they are, just given their size.  I have been thinking about extending the use of tomato plants that do not produce fruit.  When you rub a tomato plant and smell your hands, that is one of my favorite smells.  I would like to learn to make tomato oil/essence and make tomato soap.  A drop of that smell in salad dressing, in the middle of winter, that would bring a sense of summer back.
