The Best Way To Keep Tomatoes Fresh
No one wants tomatoes to go to waste, but you might not have the time or desire to preserve their fresh flavor by cooking them into dishes such as salsa or tomato bisque. That's why it's important to know the best ways to keep your tomatoes fresh and extend their shelf life.
The best way to store fresh tomatoes is on the countertop. All you need to do to prep the tomatoes is remove the stem and place them stem-side down on a flat surface on the countertop. Using this method can keep your fresh, ripening tomatoes at their best for close to a week.
If your tomatoes come from a retailer where they were kept refrigerated, or if the tomatoes you have are already very ripe, it is best to place them in the fridge, which will keep them fresh for about a week. With these tips, you'll never have to throw away another tomato again.
