What's the best way to start enjoying the texture of tomatoes, /ck/? I like the taste, but I've always been put off by the texture of it. Are there any ways to prepare large chunks or wedges other than eating them raw in a salad or something?

Make sure they haven't been refrigerated. It seems most people I talk to that don't like tomatoes (especially the texture) keep them in the fridge and they get mealy.
I love tomatoes.

Some people just don't like eating a slimy mouthful of seeds. I think it's a valid complaint, but it doesn't bother me personally.

Interesting article on tomato refrigeration. I think OP's problem could just be he is buying shit tomatoes. They're really only worth eating plain in the summer months when you can get fresh farmers market ones. The difference in quality is actually amazing.
>>
Grow your own heirloom tomatoes.

Taste much better than those from the supermarket.
>>

The article is interesting, but I'm still not going to refrigerate my tomatoes. You can show me all the articles you want saying that the texture isn't affected, but I disagree. I think I can tell a difference. Also, all that mold and shit on the tomato after 4 days on the counter? What the fuck is wrong with your counter?
>>
>>7359953
Fuck me, these people are annoying!
>>
throw a lil salt on some sliced tomats
>>
>>7359793
Ignore all these retards talking about refrigeration techniques. The real answer is you grow your own. The ones you buy in the store arent fully ripe hecause they pick them early. When you grow them, they mature and lose the mushy tasteless white stuff inside. Instead its just firm juicy red flesh throughout. Its a completely different experience.
