Strawberries, raspberries and blueberries are delicious. Before your berries go fuzzy, use this trick to keep them fresher for longer. This also removes some of the pesticides that can be used on berries.
What you need:
- Mix a solution of 1 part DYC white vinegar with 3 parts water (ie 1/4 cup of vinegar added to 3/4 cup of water).
- Submerge the fruit in the solution for at least 30 seconds.
- Rinse in freshwater.
- Dry thoroughly – we recommend using a salad spinner lined with paper towels (for strawberries and blueberries). It is essential that the berries are very dry before you put them away.
- Once dry, pack them in a container, lined with a paper towel and store in the fridge.
Tip: You can use the remaining white vinegar and water solution in your dishwasher – simply pour inside the bottom of your dishwasher.
