Tip of the Day: Storing Tomatoes

Keep those tomatoes on the counter. Even a short period of time in the refrigerator can suck the flavor our of one of summer’s favorite fruits. The coldness of the fridge also lead to undesirable mealiness. So, pick them when you are just about ready to use them or store upside-down on the counter for a few days. If you have an abundance of them, make tomato soup for those cold months of winter and stick it in the fridge, you’ll be glad you did!

  1. If you write down what you plan to do with your garden you can save a lot of time. Take the help of a friend if needed. Keep the plan in front of you and let the brainstorming begin. You have to ensure its appearance and calculate the distance of the hose from it. Also if there are any sprinklers needed. This is over and above other points you may think of.

    Any tips on how to keep them green a few extra days? I’m saving a few for fried green tomatoes.

    Do you know of a good tomato soup recipe? I love your idea to make some in anticipation for cold winter days!

  4. Hey Melissa-

    Yes, I would say, put them in one of the bottom drawers of the fridge with nothing else. This should help for a day or two!

    BTW – I LOVE fried green tomatoes! Especially with homemade aioli!
