Don't you hate it when you go to the farmer's market and you bring home a beautiful basket of berries, and by the time you're ready to eat them they've already gone bad? Today, I'm going to show you a tip on how to prevent your berries from going mushy and moldy! First, we're going to make a solution to rinse your berries in: 1/3 cup white vinegar to 4 cups water. Next, we're going to place the berries in the solution, and we're going to swirl them around gently. You don't want to get them banged up or bruised. And we're going to just let them soak and swirl for about 30 seconds. Next, we're going to drain the berries. And make sure you do this very gently, we don't want to get them bruised up. Now, we're going to dry the berries. And we're just going to gently lay them out on a paper towel. And you can let them sit there for about 3-5 minutes. Now that your berries are dry, they are ready to store. Just grab a container and put a little layer of paper towel there, and gently put your berries in the container. What's really great about this vinegar and water solution is that it kills the mold spores and the bacteria on the surface of the fruit, and helps your berries stay fresher longer. Now they are ready to store in your fridge and they'll be good when you're ready to eat them.
