Storing Tomatoes


One of the most common  mistakes when storing tomatoes is to put them in a refrigerator. Storing tomatoes in refrigerator does  not keep them fresher for longer, the opposite is true. They lose flavour and become mushy. There are far better ways of storing fresh tomatoes in order to keep them tasting fresh and sweet while maintaining their firm texture.
The best place to get your tomatoes is from your own kitchen garden, raised bed or raised planter.
When you growing your own tomatoes prepare them properly for  storage.

teaspoons of salt. After leaving them to soak for about twenty minutes remove them one by one and dry carefully with a cloth. Then place them in a bowl, or Apple rack lined with kitchen towel with the tomato stems at the top. If you place the tomato with the stem at the top they will stay fresher longer. The most tender part of the tomato is around the stem, making this the most likely part to be bruised.
If your tomatoes are shop bought you should remove them from their packaging as soon as possible. Leaving them in polythene bags will cause them to rot a lot quicker.
