Summer is over and fall is definitely upon us. I don’t know about you, but I still have a ton of tomatoes on my vines.
Tomatoes ripen from the bottom up and the inside out, so don’t put tomatoes on a windowsill to ripen because they will only turn red, but not ripe. They will stay green inside.
So try this ripening trick, it works every time:
1. Place your unripened tomatoes on a tray, and then put them in a dark, warm spot.
2. Cover them with a single sheet of newspaper.
3. These are the conditions tomatoes need to continue the ripening process, which is internal. The light, which was needed for “growth” isn’t needed anymore.
4. Eat when ready.
Try this, it works so great!
