ALL ABOUT TOMATOES
Tomatoes are the most grown vegetable in Europe and we eat loads of them ever year. There are thousands of species and in botany tomatoes count as berries rather than fruit.
Sweet and umami
Tomatoes are essential in savory cuisine, but they have just as high a sugar content as raspberries. The combination of sweet and umami is what makes tomatoes so special. The umami of tomatoes combined with salt is an excellent way of drawing out flavors from other ingredients.
Tomatoes are a massively useful product.
