-Seed by cutting the tomato in half crosswise and remove seeds with the tip of a knife or a spoon.

-Slice tomatoes the French way, from stem to blossom and in this way they lose less juice. 

-Top with fresh or dried herbs, such as basil, oregano, tarragon, thyme.

-Stuff large tomatoes with a variety of mixtures such as fish, poultry, egg salad or cottage cheese.
