The tomato is one of American’s favorite vegetables to grow at home and is a key ingredient to thousands of recipes. Bonus points, each tomato only has about 25 calories!
When buying, choose tomatoes with bright, shiny skin and firm flesh. Store at room temperature away from direct sunlight, for use within 1 week. Tomatoes taste best if not refrigerated; refrigerate only if you can’t use them before they spoil.
