Making the most of tomatoes?

Do not keep them in the refrigerator. Ripe, freshly picked tomatoes have a special taste, which stand in the refrigerator no means improved. So keep them in a cool place, in a basket or container with holes so that air can circulate freely around them. In order to develop the flavor slightly immature tomatoes, place them in a paper bag with an apple. Izbockajte fork bag, so that it was not enough air, and leave a day or two at room temperature.

Dry them Another way you can enjoy the most delicious tomatoes out of season - dry them. Tomatoes cut into quarters and clean seed. Pat dry with paper kitchen towel and then the meat tomato quarters, cut side up, arrange on a baking sheet. Sprinkle them with a little olive oil, sprinkle them with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper - along with the chopped herbs or garlic if you like - and place them in the oven to 150 degrees C, for approximately one hour. Dried tomatoes let it cool, then store them in a plastic container. Keep them in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.

Keep giving the flavor of tomatoes freeze well, so they, when they are most delicious, it should be saved for later use. Produce them yourself or buy the best you can offer better on green markets or directly from growers.Tomatoes just cut a hard environment, leaving the rest of the entire fruit, arrange them on a baking sheet and place in freezer. When tomatoes are frozen, put them in plastic bags and return to freezer. They can be thawed and used for sauces, soups and casseroles. The skin will be given easy to peel them if you let it thaw a bit. Or you can put them under running hot water and then peel.

Avoid canned chopped tomatoes True, they're easy to prepare and can be very tasty, but it is advisable to take a can of whole tomatoes. So you can squeeze the sauce from a can, which is usually watery and leaves a slightly metallic taste in the mouth. For most recipes, the tomatoes will not even have to chop, mash them a lot of hands and add to sauce or casserole. Moreover, good canned tomatoes may have better flavor than fresh, especially those early tomatoes that are found in supermarkets.
