How to Store Tomatoes

Summer's vine-ripened tomatoes are very perishable. Store ripe tomatoes at room temperature away from direct sunlight and use within a few days. Do not store tomatoes in the refrigerator or they will lose most of their flavor.

    I made this for a potluck BBQ and it was a huge hit! Should have doubled the batch.
