Keeping Berries Fresh


BlueberriesI LOVE all types of berries but one thing that drives me nuts is buying berries, storing them in the fridge only to find out the next day that they’re fuzzy or furry. I thought to myself “if only I could find a the secret to keeping berries fresh longer.” As I’ve been eating more fresh fruits and veggies, I have discovered good ways to make them last longer and guess what? I’m going to be sharing that today 🙂

For berries, this is what I found out works:

1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar (or you can also use lemon juice)

1 cup of water (or 8 ounces for those of you who like to know the exact amount)

Pour the water and apple cider vinegar or lemon into a large bowl, place your berries in there and make sure that every berry gets the water/vinegar mix on it, dry with a paper towel, place in a container and place in the refrigerator and you’re set. The idea is that the vinegar and water mixture will get rid of all the bacteria and yucky stuff that makes the fuzzies and furries on the fruit.
