Think August is the only time to enjoy juicy red tomatoes? With this hack, you’ll have plenty of ripe tomatoes long after the farmer’s market closes for the season. Take fresh-picked, unblemished green tomatoes and place them in a cardboard box well insulated on the bottom and sides with four layers of newspaper. Top each layer with a few more sheets of newspaper, and stack to the top of the box. Cover the whole collection with more newspaper and store until you’re ready for a fresh BLT mid December.

Do it Today: Get fresh, ripe tomatoes all winter by stashing green tomatoes in a cardboard box with plenty of newspaper and letting them ripen slowly.
