Juicy, ripe red tomatoes? Here's a delicious way to enjoy them as well as aromatic fresh basil.
One-fourth cup prepared basil pesto can be used in place of the cheese, nuts, basil, olive oil, garlic salt and pepper.
If fresh tomatoes need to ripen, store them at room temperature in a brown paper bag or in a fruit-ripening bowl with other fruits. Standing in the sun to ripen will make them mushy.
The tomato is not a vegetable but a fruit — a berry, to be exact.
