TEST KITCHEN TIP:

  • One pound of tomatoes equals about 2 large or 3 medium-sized tomatoes.
  • Try Hamilton Beach NutriFresh™ Easy-Fill Vacuum Sealer bags. Stand bag up on counter vertically to eliminate air bubbles. If necessary, rest bag in an open kitchen drawer in order to keep it upright. Do not exceed MAX LIQUID FILL line (about half full). For best results, use Hamilton Beach NutriFresh™ Food Vacuum Sealer with its dual stage design that allows it to quickly seal liquids.
