I still put my tomatoes in the fridge. I love cold, crisp tomatoes.

I've been shopping and cooking for more than 60 years and never knew some of this stuff.

Tho everyone says not to wash produce until you use it, letting your strawberries/ raspberries/ any berries rest a while in cool water which has a sploosh of vinegar added to it will double the storage time. Maybe longer. The vinegar cannot be tasted.

I only wish this worked for all of mine. If I leave tomatoes on the counter they turn black by 2 days. Same with bananas. In fact, most things will rot in my house. Potatoes usually start growing stems within a couple weeks. Apples have to go in the fridge or they will start getting sot and wrinkled. I always hear don't ever refrigerate a tomato or a couple other things, but I still do. I lose things to rotting even then.

To reduce loss of fresh produce on shopping day, make Garbage Soup with the saved trimmings and no-longer fresh enough to serve raw veggies adding the ends of the bag frozen along with leftovers.
