Quickly Ripen Fruit!

If you bring home unripe fruit, here is a Kitchen Hack to expedite the ripening process!

Quickly ripen your fruit by placing the unripe fruit in a brown paper bag and loosely close the top of the bag. The fruit will give off a gas called ethylene and the bag will allow the gas to circulate around the fruit, which speeds up the ripening process.

If you want your fruit to ripen even faster, throw a banana into the bag. The combination of the bag and the additional ethylene from the banana will leave you with soft, ripe fruit in no time!
