Berry season is just around the corner so we are starting to see more and more of them on the shelves or at the farmers market. We love berries around our house so they rarely go bad however there is nothing more frustrating than having a carton go bad almost instantly. Here a tip for preserving their longevity: wash them in vinegar.
Prepare one part vinegar(white or apple cider) to ten parts water. Dump your berries in, give them a swirl, drain, rinse and store in the fridge.
The vinegar kills the mold spores and other bacteria that might be on the surface.
