Ripening Tomatoes

Buying tomatoes at the supermarket can be a daunting task. The quality is often poor because most are picked green and ripened in big rooms using ethylene gas.

However, even the worst tomato can be made better by placing it stem side down on a sunny windowsill. It will continue to ripen the tomato further . If you want it chilled, place it in the fridge for only a couple of hours.
