Default This week's thought provoking food experiment: Carbonated tomatoes!

Here are the suspects:
1) A plastic bottle.
(Doesn't everyone have a Bulgarian Lager Magnum in a plastic bottle laying around?)

2) A Carbonator cap.

3) Small tomatoes.

I'm wondering who's going to make the bigger mess, you or that damn dog...

I'm intrigued by this - what are you expecting to find?

If you can figure out a way to make bubbly ketchup, my daughter will *love* you...

Looks like an interesting experiment... do you think that the skin on the tomatoes is gas permeable?

It's my understanding that it will carbonate.

I'm going to guess that you'll need to drop the pressure on those slowly. If you just pop the top, promise us that you'll have video rolling.

You gonna lager those tomatoes? Sounds like it might not be too bad. Can you make carbonated pickles, that would be awesome.

I just read the article and have two questions. How does adding CO2 make something "Sweeter" (rhetorical, the writer is an idiot)
and, where do they find these self proclaimed health advocates? Someone is complaining because they are "disguising fruit as soda?" This is one of the first things to hit the shelves in the past decade that isn't 90% corn syrup! Hats off to them.
olllllo, if your experiment doesn't turn into a red volcano, my kids are so getting some of this (maybe even still with a volcano)
