To ensure they stop ripening in the fridge, dry the unripe avocados, and vacuum bag them, or place them in tightly closed bags while excluding as much air as possible. Store them like this for four to five days days if the fridge. Then transfer them into a typical not quite airtight fridge style container. Make sure they stay dry By restricting their ...

If you buy them hard, and put them in the refrigerator right away, you can probably get a month out of them. After having been refrigerated, they will take longer to ripen at room temperature. So check them two days before you want to use them. If they're still a bit hard, leave them in a paper bag on the counter for twice as long as you would unrefrigerated ...

Frozen tomatoes will lose all their structure, so are only of use for cooking. Canned tomatoes works very well for cooking and are cheap. The taste is also improved by the canning process, but not by freezing. So I can’t see how anyone can charge enough for frozen tomatoes to as to make a profit. But I have frozen my own tomatoes. To do so, blanch them ...

Beside the reasons in the other answers, tomatoes really don't like low temperatures. They change their aroma and texture already at fridge temperature. They will go through the same temperature region when freezing and thawing, so they will get that bad taste of a cooled tomato. They won't have the texture of a fridge tomato though, because the freezer will ...

They are :) http://www.picard.fr/produits/tomates-quartiers-pelees/000000000000010412,default,pd.html (site in French). However if you look at the reviews the average customer isn't too pleased with the product, essentially for the reasons mentioned by @PatSommer (watery, poor texture, etc.). Don't forget that canning transforms tomatoes in a way which ...

There is no advantage to freezing over canning, and from many perspective there are disadvantages (discolouration, mushiness, overall general cellular destruction) The embodied energy required to can is also much less than to keep them frozen, so this combined with disadvantages of freezing tomatoes, manufacturers choose to use canning Yes, you can freeze ...

Freeze one, thaw it and see. The liquid separates out and leaves a pulpy structure behind. Tomato sauce (no chunks) thaws much better and separated liquid can be stirred back in well enough. Canned works as we all know so no one is bothering trying to grow a freezer-friendly tomato, yet.

The previous answer is very complete and correct. However my preference based on education and experience would be to get your sauce done all at the same time and let it sit at least overnight to allow the flavors to combine and meld together. A sauce such as a bolognese has a lot of flavors. If you complete it even a week ahead and let it sit in the fridge ...

Short version: If it's only overnight, and you seal the containers reasonably well, you'll be okay prepping any of those ingredients ahead of time and storing them in the refrigerator overnight. I often leave onions in the fridge when preparing a recipe that calls for only half an onion, or if I've decided to use less than I prepped, or if I'm making a ...

You can also engrave on glass using a product from Joannns/Michaels called Amour Etch. I've engraved 9x13 glassware with it, and given it as gifts. Yes, it's washable. Amour Etch is something that you have to use carefully. Google it. Here's a handy instructional video
