Prevent Fresh Berries From Molding

This is the time of the year for succulent berries and fruits-- and unfortunately, many of us will discover the mold has formed on our berries (particularly raspberries) before we get to finish eating the container we brought home from the store or picked in the backyard.

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....
