Goods to Know on Ripening

Summer is here and so is all that lovely fresh, local fruit. I especially love peaches and nectarines but often find them too hard.  Then by the time I remember them again, they are rotten or past their prime.  My dear brother in-law and I recently went shopping together and he bought some nectarines.  I commented on how I never buy them (for above said reasons) and he shared with me the cure.

Place any hard fruit (avocado & tomatoes will work too) in a brown bag and/or plastic bag WITH an apple and store it in a dark cool place (ie. your cupboard). In the morning, your fruit will be good-to-go.  So simply but so effective.

(…and if you haven’t already checked it out, also see other uses for your cupboard).
