Tip for Fruit That Spoils Too Quickly

Here’s a tip from a reader that works for her…

Berries are delicious, but they’re also kind of delicate and can get that fuzzy mold fairly easily.

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!
