One of the greatest things about summer is the vast amount of berries and great produce that are in season!! However, almost nothing is more irritating then buying a ton of great fruit, to have them be moldy a couple days later! Fruit is not so cheap these days, and if you’re like me, you want them to last for longer than that! Luckily, I have come across a solution that I personally tried this past week and it totally works!
When you get home from the grocery store with your lovely fruit put them in the sink or a bowl, and add a solution of 10 parts water to 1 part vinegar. Swish the fruit around and then just rinse them off and put them in whatever container you will store them in! There isn’t a taste of vinegar on the fruit, it tastes totally normal and it keeps them from molding so quickly! I’ve had my strawberries and blackberries for almost a week and they are still perfect! So feel free to stock up on all those summer goodies, knowing they’ll last more than a few days!
