More on our “Ultimate” BLT Sandwich

This week’s menu features our “Ultimate” BLT and it truly lives up to its name. We use the freshest ingredients and add our own twist to the class sandwich with our housemade bacon and chive aioli. Also unique to our BLT is our heirloom tomatoes that provide bright color and distinct flavors to the sandwich.

Heirloom tomatoes have a shorter shelf life and are only in season for a short period of time. They vary in color and sometimes taste—yellow heirlooms, for example, are milder in taste while red heirlooms are more acidic. The most popular kinds are Green Zebra, Cream Sausage, Amish Paste, Sungolds, and Rutgers but there are more than 30 different kinds. Due to heirloom tomatoes’ genetics, they often resist local pests, diseases, and extreme weather conditions, which is why the window of time to grow and purchase these tomatoes is smaller than commercial tomatoes.

Our bacon is both cured and smoked in house here in the Catering kitchen. We use pork belly and use a dry marinade rub with brown sugar and kosher salt. This sort of technique adds immense flavor to the pork without using any oil and it’s also a good way to preserve it. This is not the first meat we’ve cured here at Green Tidings—we’ve also done smoked salmon and pancetta as well.

Stop by the truck this week and next week to get your own “Ultimate” BLT. We promise it won’t disappoint!
