The Easy Tape Hack That Keeps Tomatoes Fresh And Juicy
To keep tomatoes fresh, simply store them in a way that the stub of the green stem and the small indentation around it are covered. One of the best ways to do so is with tape.
To do so, simply cover the stem area with tape. This way, you create a mostly airtight seal that will allow your tomatoes to stay fresh-looking for over a week.
This makes such a big impact on your tomatoes because of the way they lose moisture. The stem area is the tomato’s most permeable part and can cause premature spoiling.
Besides this method, the best way to store tomatoes depends on their ripeness. If they’re ripe, store them in the fridge, but otherwise, just leave them at room temperature.
