How To Store Cut Up Tomatoes?
This morning I skinned, seeded and cut up several pounds of tomatoes in preparation of making tomato jam tomorrow night. Very early tomorrow morning I will cover the tomatoes with vinegar and let them sit until I make the jam tomorrow night.
My question is: What do I do with the cut up tomatoes in the mean time? They are currently in plastic storage bags sitting on my kitchen counter. Should I refrigerate them or can I leave them out? I'm afraid that the fridge will ruin the flavor of the tomatoes but at the same time, I want to make sure that they are safe to use tomorrow.
I appreciate your advice.
