Prep Tip
  • Tomatoes are one of the few fruits and veggies that still ripen after they are picked. The quickest ways to ripen tomatoes are to put them on a sunny windowsill, or store them in a paper bag on the counter. If you want to really speed up the ripening process, add a banana or apple to the bag and be sure to poke a few holes in the bag for air.
