Grainger County tomatoes

Mamaw Smith and I took a ride a few days ago to Rutledge, TN into Grainger county where they are famous for their tomatoes a little like Vidalia, GA is famous for its onions.  We each bought a case of their beautiful vine ripe tomatoes.  We know the owner of Ritter farms and he went down to their sorting house and selected each of us a beautiful case of tomatoes.  I wish I could adequately describe the taste of these wonderful tomatoes,  They are very acidic and taste like a tomato should.

I sliced several of them for our grillfest yesterday and in addition, I sliced some and slathered them with EVO, salt, pepper, mozzarella cheese with some pepperoni on top and broiled them for a couple of minutes.  Totally outstanding.
 
They are having a huge tomato festival in Rutledge, TN this weekend and thousands attend.
