Can’t get enough fresh fruit?!

 

One of my favorite aspects of summer is the variety and quality of local, fresh fruit.  Fruit is my weekness.  I often think I could live on fruit alone. Strawberries, blueberries, cantelope, honey dew, papaya, plums, apricot, nectarines, I could go on…

In an effort to keep produce fresh and not having to head to the market daily I have found great solution to keep berries fresh.

Prepare a mixture of one part vinegar (white or apple cider) and ten parts water. Dump the berries into the mixture and swirl around. Drain, rinse and pop in the fridge.

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.
