    (Works! My strawberries usually would last only a week, but after this they lasted 2.5!!) Cleaning fruit - fill sink with water, add 1 C. vinegar, mix. Add all fruit 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. will DEF have to try this!

    When buying fruit and veggies, always soak them in a 1:4 ratio of vinegar and water to help remove toxins and pesticides. Leave them soaking for up to an hour, longer with nonorganic apples. At the end of the bath, sometimes you can even see cloudy like stuff in the water from the skins and waxes, and dirt on the bottom. Works awesome! Once I did this to blackberries and they were good for 3 WEEKS! That's unheard of with berries

    Most Common Cooking Mistakes... This is worth pinning!! I though I could read through it and get the idea, but there's TONS of info in here.

    A Pinner said: one of the most useful things I learned in culinary school was how to cut melon...repinning for those people who still don't know how! I started cutting my watermelon this way and no longer dread it!

    Those packages of pre-sliced apples you can buy at store are great for a healthy snack on the go but the price can add up. Make your own by slicing apples, soak in cold water for 3-5 minutes, then soak in a lemon-lime carbonated soda (such as 7-up or sprite) for 3-5 minutes. Divide into snack size portions and store in Ziploc bags in the fridge. The lemon-lime soda will keep the apples from browning and make them last longer. LOVE THIS IDEA!

    Who knew - add 1/2 tsp baking soda to the water when hard boiling eggs and the shell will come right off. Perfect when having to peel a ton for deviled eggs! One of my followers (Sharon-thanks!) commented that this really works :)

    Never peel your hard boiled eggs again! (I feel slightly dumb that I've never thought of this) slice with a sharp knife then scoop out with a spoon.

    Mom Tip: Tired of you sliced apples turning brow before it’s time to eat them – then you will love this tip – After you slice your apple, soak the slices in Sprite, 7-up, or Gingerale for 10 to 15 minutes . Then remove the slices, place them on a paper towel, and blot them dry. You can then put them into baggies or small storage containers to eat later.
