Pick a perfect fruit

Tip 1: Not quite ripe yet?

Place your stone fruit in a paper bag, out of direct sunlight at room temperature. Check daily for perfect ripeness.

Tip 2: Extend Freshness

When your stone fruit is ripe, store in a plastic bag in the crisper drawer of your refrigerator. This will preserve freshness for an extra three to five days.

Tip 3: Whoops, too ripe …

Don’t toss your stone fruit yet! Roughly chop up the fruit, toss in a saucepan with a little water, a touch of sugar and dash of cinnamon. Cook down until fruit is soft and syrupy for a delicious fruit compote to top ice cream, waffles, pancakes, yogurt and more.
