Welcome to another Ezy lesson! In this video, Ralph Anania shows you how to pick and store tomatoes.
Picking the Perfect Tomato
Tomatoes come in different varieties. You can use your senses to pick the perfect one; Feel the weight of the tomatoes. If they are heavier than they look, those are the ones you want. Also choose the ones that look deeply coloured and firm. Lastly, sniff around for the ones with that woody and sweet smell.
The best way to store tomatoes is on a plate at room temperature. Never store tomatoes in a plastic bag. If you want to keep them for a long time, you can put them in a pierced paper bag. This will also speed up the ripening process.
