I have a hanging basket in the kitchen for my tomatoes and if I cut it I eat the entire tomato then and there. They act of chilling a whole or cut tomato sucks the flavor away immediately.
"The Eat Seasonably Calendar" helps you select fruits & veggies that are in season ♥ They usually taste better & are a better value... and are usually better for the environment too! ♥ (if you click on the picture it will take you to a cool interactive seasonal fruit & veggie wheel!)
DIY Pesticide Wash for Non Organic Produce 1. Put produce in a bowl and spritz well with vinegar. The acidic vinegar actually breaks down chemicals from the field and waxes or any storage enhancers that may have been used will rinse away. 2. Spritz well with 3% Hydrogen Peroxide. This step will sanitize the produce. Finally, rinse under cold water.
