Here’s a tip from a reader that works for her…
Here’s a tip I’m sharing on how to prevent them from getting that in the first place:
Wash them with vinegar.
· When you get your berries home, prepare a mixture of one part vinegar (white or apple cider probably work best) and ten parts water.
· Dump the berries into the mixture and swirl around.
· Drain, rinse if you want (though the mixture is so diluted you can’t taste the vinegar)
· Pop in the fridge.
· The vinegar kills any mold spores and other bacteria that might be on the surface of the fruit, and voila! Raspberries will last a week or more, and strawberries go almost two weeks without getting moldy and soft.
You’re so berry welcome!
