Heirloom refers to varieties of tomatoes whose seeds have traditionally been handed down from generation to generation of farmer and culled from each year’s harvest. Heirlooms are by definition open-pollinated, meaning they’re not hybrid breeds that have been developed specifically to resist disease and preserve shelf life.
Our summery, savory variation on the classic French apple tart uses a store-bought puff pastry crust, so it’s is a cinch to make. The natural sweetness of the tomatoes gets a boost from a hint of caramel, and a lovely savory depth from a dash of vinegar, some ground pepper, and a sprinkling of fresh thyme.
Half-custard and half-cake, clafoutis is a breeze to make, cooks in less than half an hour, and is light enough to justify adding it to your regular baking rotation this summer.
