I never get tired of tomatoes, I can eat them all year long. But tomatoes are one of the foods that go bad extremely fast. If you want your tomatoes to stay fresh as long as possible and make it taste good for longer, here are two things to keep in mind after buying your next batch of tomatoes.
1. Don’t Store Them In The Fridge
I’ve always thought that I should be storing my tomatoes in the fridge. But tomatoes should actually be stored at room temperature. If you keep them in the fridge, they will lose their flavor quickly.
2. The Stem Rule
Whether you’re storing your tomatoes in the pantry or on the counter, you should let them sit with their stems facing down. This will prevent the air from entering and moisture from leaving the fruit.
If you follow these two simple rules, your tomatoes will stay fresh and flavorful as much as possible.
