Stone Fruits

The trick to properly storing fresh stone fruit is to make sure they don't get too cold before they fully ripen.

Exposing stone fruits to cold too early can cause them to take on a grainy texture.

Store nectarines, peaches, apricots, and plums on the counter at room temperature until they are fully ripe. This can take up to 3 days. Once ripe, place them in a sealeable bag or container in the fridge for up to 5 days. 

You will know when a peach or a nectarine is fully ripe by the fragrant smell and soft flesh that should give a little when pressed gently.
