Berry season is one of my families favorite times of the year! Strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries we love them all.
We enjoy berries of all varieties purchased from local markets and farmers markets
As well as the berries that are home grown in our garden. Wherever we get them from we realize berries are beautiful food that is also very delicate and perishable.
Have you ever purchased berries with the anticipation of eating them the next day? You place them in your refrigerator only to find them the next morning with mold already starting to grow on some of the berries?! I have a solution to this berry conundrum.
Prepare a bath for you berries out of water and vinegar.
Mix a solution of 1 part white vinegar to 10 parts water.
Pour the berries into the mixture, swirl them around and drain them. There you go! This solution kills any mold spores that may be on the fruit. Yes, this really works!
So before you put those beauties in your refrigerator, remember to give them a bath and they will last much longer!
1o parts water
1 part white vinegar
Make enough of the berry bath to cover the berries.
Place berries in a bowl and pour the solution over them swirl the berries around.
Drain. Voila! Mold free berries! Enjoy!
