This is awesome!
Hot tip for the fruit lover
Ever get a container of strawberries and 2 days later.... over 1/2 of them were either soft or had green fuzz growing on them.....NO MORE....
At the price of fresh fruit these days, we can't afford to waste it and lose the healthy benefit by it ending up in the trash.
Another wonderful use for good old economical vinegar.
The key to preventing moldy berries...
Berries are delicious, but they're also kind of delicate. Raspberries in particular seem like they can mold before you even get them home from the market.
There's nothing more tragic than paying $4 for a pint of local raspberries, only to look in the fridge the next day and find that fuzzy mold growing on their insides.
With fresh berries just starting to hit farmers markets.... Here's how you can keep them fresh!
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.
So go forth and stock up on those pricey little gems, knowing they'll stay fresh as long as it takes you to eat them.
