    Until you guys came along, it had never occurred to me that recommending tomatoes that are “heavy for their size” could be interpreted as a body positivity slogan and let me just say I am ALL IN.

    Watching all those American cooks with their beautiful tomatoes while living in an northern European area is basically self-torture

              Emphatic consent is key to a good relationship with any tomato, heirloom or otherwise.

                You also need a very sharp knife. I don't like using serrated knives on anything, so the only time you should be doing so is when you are currently unable to sharpen your other knives to be capable of cutting the tomatoes without destroying them.

                            Watched this and ran into the kitchen, pulled out some out dated flatbread, opened a tin of 🍅 and covered in queso fresco. Pathetic in comparison but was satisfying.
                            I will try this when my tomatoes get big and ripe enough.

                                    Baking soda will also leven but at a higher temperature. This is why it's great for putting out grease/oil.

                                        They have pretty nails but it drives me insane. I work in the food industry and wearing polish is a huge no no.
