Once the temperatures start dropping in The Northwoods, the garden tomato season comes to halt. Mornings are chilly and fall colors start appearing in the hardwoods. Summer is short lived in Wisconsin, but we do everything we can to prolong the season and to savor every last bit of summer.

BLTs are especially satisfying this time of year, as fresh tomatoes will soon be spent, and we’ll be gathering pumpkins and apples instead. Whether you’re looking forward to fall or holding on to the last threads of summer, there’s no better duo than the tanginess of tomato and sweet smokiness of Nueske’s Bacon to showcase all that summer provided.

Try Nueske’s Smoked Bacon Super Sampler to pair with your remaining ripe, juicy tomatoes. The combinations are endless with this variety pack… and we recommend trying avocados on your next BLT, too – they lend a creamy layer of flavor that’s a perfect match for our bacons!
