Apples — Help Ripen Fruits & Healthful Treats Too

Apples are great in pies, and to keep away those pesky doctors, but did you know they can also help other fruits ripen faster?

If you've ever bought a rock-hard avocado, or been forced to pull green tomatoes off the vine before the first frost, you know what it's like to wait days for fruit to ripen, only to have it spoil before you're ready to use it.

 

    Next time you have unripened avocadoes or tomatoes, punch holes in a paper bag, then place the fruit in the bag along with an apple. The apple produces ethylene gas, which helps speed up ripening, so you'll be able to enjoy your fruit sooner!
