TOMATOES – Tomatoes are acidic, making them especially easy to preserve in home canning whole, in pieces, as tomato sauce or paste. They are a key ingredient in pizza, and are commonly used in pasta sauces. They are also used in gazpacho. While it is botanically a fruit, it is considered a vegetable for culinary purposes. The fruit is rich in lycopene, which may have beneficial health effects. Tomato varieties are available with double the normal vitamin C, 40 times normal vitamin A. It is not recommended to refrigerate as this can harm the flavor.
