Useful information

The methods for salting vegetables are almost identical, with the exception of some nuances. I will share a few secrets that will help in the preparation of perfect salted tomatoes.

  • For salting, use “cream”. These tomatoes are characterized by dense skin and fleshy structure. Additionally, they do not undergo deformation during the salting process.
  • Any dish is suitable for pickling cucumbers. In the case of tomatoes, I do not recommend using barrels and other large containers, otherwise the product will collapse under its own weight. The best solution is a 3-5 liter glass container.
  • Tomatoes have a pronounced taste and aroma, so putting a lot of herbs and spices is optional. Tomatoes are best combined with dill, garlic, red pepper, parsley, celery, horseradish and currant leaves.
  • Tomatoes are rich in solanine. This substance slows down the fermentation process, so at 20 degrees the appetizer reaches readiness no earlier than after 2 weeks.

Features of salting in a bucket and in a pan

In a pan, salted tomatoes are no worse than in a barrel. The number of vegetables is determined by the capacity of the container. At the bottom are spices and other additives, then tomatoes. When laying, it is recommended to shake the pan to seal. Last of all, vegetables are covered with gauze, put a circle and a load. After a month, the snack is ready.
