Better Home Cooking Basics: #38 Ripen Tomatoes on the Counter in a Paper Bag.
To keep with my tomato-loving posts this week, I figured I'd share the tip from my mom on how to ensure ripe tomatoes at home. If you bring home less than red tomatoes pop them in a paper bag (sometimes they'll give you brown paper bags at the farmers market - take them). Sit them on your counter for a day or two et voila you will have ripe tomatoes in no time. (Please note that if you buy green tomatoes they will not ripen like this but they will make for some tastey fried green tomatoes :)
