Ever wonder how to ripen fresh stone fruit on the counter top? I was given this advice years ago while working in San Francisco. Every Wednesday a group of us would walk down to the Farmer's Market, near the Courthouse, and buy produce, veggies or whatever they were selling. I was hesitant to buy fresh fruit because it spoiled to quickly. My co-worker told me to place the fruit inside a brown paper bag and turn them daily until ripened.
Sounds simple enough, right? Well it is. The key is to turn the fruit daily. Watch for brown spots. Once you see brown spots you might as well cut the fruit and make jam. Leaving them in the bag won't save them from spoiling,only allow the fruit to ripen naturally.
