We are often asked whether to refrigerate or to leave your tomatoes on the counter?
Both ways are correct!
It's okay to store tomatoes in a shady cool area on your counter top.
BUT, then eat them up quickly! This gives you the best flavor.
Too busy to eat them up?
In a couple of days, place them in the refrigerator crisper drawer for 2 to 3 days.
HOWEVER, flavor tends to decrease. But, you still have a good tomato!
One of the best things about tomatoes is...you don’t need to do much to make a great tasting dish.
What's the best way to keep Sweet Corn fresh?
If you are too busy to eat right away,
leave the husk on the sweet corn,
place in a plastic bag with the silk end tilted down into the bag.
Stays fresh for several days, so you can eat later!
