Tips-n-Tricks Tuesday: How To Ripen A Tomato

*****Welcome to Tips-n-Tricks Tuesday! This is where I give little tips on things that aren't really projects (e.g. not how to make a pillow, but the best stitch for when you make the pillow - make sense?).*****

   Ever have a kiddo pull a tomato off the plant that wasn't fully red yet? Or maybe it was you ;-) Well, have no fear, it will still probably ripen just fine.Ask people and you will get many tips like: "set it in the window-sill", "turn it every day", etc, etc. Well I have another tip to add to the repertoire :) Don't set it up-side down as you may do to keep it from rolling. Think of how it ripens on the vine: not upside-down! A smart older man once told me that the flavor comes out of the bottom and penetrates the tomato if set the right way. But, he said if it's upside-down, all the flavor will stay right there.
