Green Tip of the Week

How to Keep Berries Fresh.......

To ensure your fresh berries last longer and will not mold!  Wash your berries in Vinegar water 
(one part white or cider vinegar and ten parts water)

Place the berries in the vinegar & water mixture. 
Soak for a  minute then rinse and refrigerate!  

The weak vinegar/water mixture will NOT change the taste of the berries...but it will kill any mold spores and other bacteria that might be on the surface of the fruit!

Raspberries will last one week longer!
Strawberries almost two weeks longer!

thanks for visiting!


  1. Wow what a great idea! I hate fuzzy berries :/

  2. I have totally been meaning to post this exact same advice!! I tried it a few months ago and it is amazing! The berries do NOT taste any different. They keep their brightness and freshness so much longer!

    Anyone wondering...this does work! :)

  3. so can not wait to do this! Thanks!
