Now is that a tomato or what? When people ask me how my food always tastes so good, I tell them one of the main reasons is that I buy quality ingredients. This way, I don’t have to do too much. This principle is even more true when it comes to your produce. Buy what’s fresh and seasonal. If it’s not ripe, don’t buy it unless you have the time to let it fully ripen. This way, it will taste as good as it looks.
