Anyone who has read my No Salt, No Fat, No Sugar Journal knows I love tomatoes. Just check out some of my fav tomato recipes, like this one for a tomato salad, or this one for a tomato sauce. I buy tomatoes every week and grow my own in summer, so I’m always interested in keeping them for as long as possible. So I enjoyed this piece, How to Store Tomatoes So They Stay Fresh For Longer.
The piece’s advice:
- On the counter, they stay good for about a week
- Two weeks if you put them in a refrigerator
- Two to three months in a freezer
I’ve never tried freezing a fresh tomato but will and will post about it here. The article notes, “frozen tomatoes probably shouldn’t be used in recipes that call for fresh ones because freezing will definitely change how they taste and feel in your mouth.”
Let me know if you freeze tomatoes.
