Make Your Berries Last Longer
Lets be real, berries are an awesome food but they go bad quickly! If you want all the flavor and for longer then use this recipe.
Prepare a mixture of one part vinegar (white or apple cider) and ten parts water. Swirl the berries around in the mixture, drain, rinse, and put them in the fridge.

How to Store Your Tomatoes
Never store your tomatoes in a plastic bag!! The trapped ethylene will make them ripen faster. Unripe tomatoes should be stored upside down (or stem side down). In a paper bag or in a cardboard box until they are ripe.
Ripe tomatoes should be stored at room temperature, stem side up, not touching each other, and away from light.
Overly ripe tomatoes should be stored in the fridge.
