Prevent moldy berries with vinegar
Cooked up on March 26, 2012 in Tips and Tricks
Berries are delicious but very delicate. Because of that, they tend to grow mold on them rather quickly. If you’re finding yourself rushing to eat recently purchased berries, here’s a tip to keep them mold free much longer!
When you get home with your newly purchased berries, prepare a mixture of one part vinegar (white or apple cider seem to work best) and ten parts water. Throw the berries in and take them for a swirl! Drain the mixture. If you prefer, you can rinse the berries, but the vinegar is so diluted it shouldn’t leave a vinegar taste. Now place the berries back in the refrigerator.
The vinegar kills mold spores and bacteria found on the surface of the fruit. Now you can enjoy your berries and not feel rushed!
