How to choose good tomatoes and how to store them?
Ripe tomatoes have a rather rich flavor. If there is no smell, most likely, the tomatoes were collected immature. The peduncle should be small. When choosing tomatoes, you need to pay attention to the smoothness of the skin, the absence of cracks, spots and traces of strokes.
A fully ripened tomato is soft and springy, but it can only be stopped if it is immediately consumed. Perverted tomato is always good for sauces and soups. In healthy fetuses, the skin is thin, and the flesh is monophonic.
If white thin veins are visible in the pulp, there are white spots in the core, and he himself is "plastic" to the touch - hence, there are nitrates in the tomato.
The storage conditions of a tomato directly depends on how mature it is. Room temperature will accelerate the maturation process. Therefore, if you want the tomato ripe, safely leave it warm. Ripe tomatoes are best kept at a temperature of about 12 degrees Celsius. At this temperature, the tomato will cease to ripen, but will not lose its flavor and useful properties.
