Juicy, flavorful, and delicious!
How to Select
Choose plump tomatoes with smooth skins that are free from bruises, cracks, or blemishes.
How to Store
Store at room temperature away from direct sunlight. Use within 1 week after ripe. Tomatoes taste best if not refrigerated; refrigerate only if you can't use them before they spoil. Freeze or can for later use.
How to Prepare
Rinse in cold water. Chop or slice. Eat raw: Add to salads, sandwiches, and fresh sauces. Eat cooked: Steam, microwave, boil, sauté, stir-fry, roast, grill, braise, or simmer. Add to casseroles, soups, and stews. Chop, simmer and blend to make sauce for pizza, pasta, rice dishes, casseroles, salsa, and dips.
