Prevent Fresh Berries From Molding
But help is here! I am thankful to my friends who send me simple solutions via email. Today I got one on how you can use a couple of household items to store your berries while preventing mold. How?
In a glass bottle or mason jar mix together cold filtered water and apple cider vinegar in a ratio of 10:1
Too simple, eh? Now, merely pour the water over your berries in a large bowl. Swirl and drain. You shouldn't need to rinse because the of the dilution (it's hard to detect the vinegar) but you can if you wish.
Pop the berries into the fridge. Raspberries and strawberries, for example, will keep without going moldy for about 1- 1 1/2 weeks. Mmmmm....
