How to keep tomatoes fresh longer

Store tomatoes stem-end down to keep them from spoiling as quickly. This prevents air from entering and moisture from exiting the scar where the tomato once attached to the vine. Storing them at room temperature is always better than in the fridge. That makes them last longer.

How to separate egg yolks from whites
