– The amount of salt when salting tomatoes should be calculated depending on the ripeness of the tomatoes: salt more green tomatoes, take not 50, but 70 grams of salt for each liter of brine.

– Banks with tomatoes until the moment when they need to be cleaned in the cold should be kept in a container, because. when insisting , the fermentation process will begin and there will be more liquid.

The tomatoes will be completely salted in a week.

– Tomatoes should be stored in the cold or at room temperature in a dark place, but then when spinning the cans, add a little vodka (50 milliliters of vodka per 3-liter jar) and mustard powder (1 tablespoon per jar). Properly harvested tomatoes will keep for up to 2 years. Store an open jar in the refrigerator for 1 week.
