In an earlier post, I wrote about how much I love strawberries. On Pinterest, I found a way to keep them fresh longer.
One of my favorite comedians is Eddy Izzard and in one of his skits, he talks about going to the grocery store and buying all the "lovely fruit" (he's British) bringing it home, setting it in a bowl on the counter . . . and watching it rot!
That happens at my house especially with strawberries. You really have to eat them right away or they go bad. This works for all fruit, not just strawberries. It cleans the fruit before you eat it, which is always a good idea, and it also keeps the fruit fresh longer!
First, fill up the sink with just enough cold water to cover the fruit and add half a cup of white vinegar. Put the fruit in a colander so it's easy to get every thing out all at once. Soak the fruit for five minutes and then remove.
You don't taste the vinegar, but after you do this, the fruit is clean and safe to eat and will stay fresh!
