Tomatoes – properly stored tomatoes will take about 1-5 days to ripen at normal room temp. To expedite this process put the tomatoes in a brown paper bag, closed and leave on the counter. Do not put the tomatoes in the fridge until they are ripe which will result in more flavour. To extend shelf life, once ripe, place in airtight bag and refrigerate. Fully ripe tomatoes last 5-7 days in the fridge. Move them 30 minutes out of the fridge prior to serving for best flavour. To freeze wash tomatoes and pat dry, leave skins on or of peel them by dipping into boiling water for 30 seconds to loosen the skin, leave tomatoes whole or cut into pieces, place tomatoes in a single layer on cookie tray in freezer, once frozen, transfer to airtight containers and freeze.
