No paper or airtight plastic bags. Instead, reach for BajaBee, a reusable beeswax food wrap that breathes and protects.
1. Large Tomatoes in a Beeswax Bag
Large fleshy tomato varieties, such as Bull's Hearts, are stored in a closed beeswax bag at room temperature. In the bag, they are protected, but at the same time, they can breathe and release ethylene gases. Green tomatoes from the garden can also be placed in the bag, where they will ripen beautifully.
2. Cherry Tomatoes in a Covered Bowl
Small cherry tomatoes are placed in a bowl, which is then covered with a beeswax wrap. We warm the wrap with our hands and press it onto the bowl to seal it. BajaBee preserves the freshness of the tomatoes and also protects them from fruit flies.
3. After Cutting, Into the Fridge
A cut tomato is stored in the refrigerator for the next day. The cut side is covered with a beeswax wrap of size S and placed in the fridge with this side up. The tomato can breathe but remains protected by this "second skin".
