When you get your berries home, prepare a mixture of one part vinegar (white or apple cider) 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,) and pop in the fridge. The vinegar kills any mold spores and other bacteria on the surface. Raspberries will last a week or more, and strawberries go almost two weeks without getting moldy and soft. Great to know!
It's always good to know the best way to store your groceries so you never have to waste rotten or expired food again! Having planned snacks/meals can also help stop this from happening. Making a food chart with the kids can be a fun way to create a routine for your groceries.
Cleaning fruit - fill sink with water, add 1 C. vinegar, mix. Add all fruit/veggies and soak for 10 minutes. Water will be dirty and fruit will sparkle with no wax or dirty film. Great for Berries too--keeps them from molding.
Extend the life of your Berries by filling a bowl with one part apple cider vinegar to ten parts water, dumping in the berries & swirling them around a bit and then draining. Place them in a covered container (do not reuse the packaging that they came in) and then put them in the fridge. The vinegar kills any mold spores or bacteria on the berries which should make your berries last for one to two weeks without going bad. Great to know!
