Totally Tomatoes – How to Store Tomatoes

One of our YouTube viewers suggested I stop refrigerating my tomatoes and keeping them on the counter. I followed his advice and was very pleasantly surprised at how well the tomatoes held up. Here is a small video on this. Enjoy!

    Thank you for the tip, I’m willing to try it. I always leave my tomatoes in the fridge just like my fruit because I buy a lot at one time in the winter or pick a lot from the garden in the summer as they all seem to be ready at the same time. It’s true, the fridge does make them watery and they also seem to lose their vibrant red color from the fridge too. I wish this tip worked for fruit too because my pears and apples always seem to ripen quicker then we can eat them unless they are washed and refrigerated.
