Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Cleaning

  • If you want your fresh produce from the store to last longer, be sure to use this trick to clean them before putting them away. Not only does the vinegar act as a preservative but it also removes any mold spores and the wax from the items. Some folks have been concerned that this will make their food taste of vinegar but I assure you it doesn't. :)

    Fill sink with water, add 1 cup vinegar, add fruit (including all berries) soak for 10 minutes. Remove from water, dry off or let air dry before storing.
