Tomatoes and other dumpster dived food in Stockholm, Sweden.

Tomatoes are very common vegetables when dumpster diving. One has to be more careful, though, when getting it from dumpsters. To play safe, don't take tomatoes with a broken skin since it is possible that some contaminants have gotten inside, which can cause a sickness. If the skin is intact, a simple cleaning with water will do, along with cutting off the overly soft parts of tomatoes. Very soft tomatoes can be used to make pasta sauce or tomato juice.
