Here’s a quick trick we learned from our favorite food friends– the frosty mug. Whenever we go over to their place, they serve us beer in a heavy glass that has come straight out of their freezer. This is enormously satisfying in the summertime, but it’s still useful as we head into winter. The best part about this hack is that it works to chill your only slightly-cooled beer. For Canadian winters, this means that your beer, already half-chilled just from carrying it home, can be cooled to a perfect temperature just by pouring it into your frosty, frosty mug. If you want your not-so-cold beer NOW, give it a try.
Quick! Before the frost hits, harvest all of the green tomatoes left on your plants. Make sure the tomatoes aren’t touching (to prevent rot) and keep them in a dark warm spot. I stowed mine in a clementine orange box. I shoved half an egg carton inside to keep the small rolly cherry tomatoes apart. I stuck the clementine box on top of the fridge (a warm spot) and put a cardboard box over top to keep the light out. Approximately three weeks later I have ripe tomatoes.
