so they last longer and you save money.
One of the ways to save money on fresh produce is to check it carefully before purchasing. Always inspect the container of berries or bags of fruit to make sure there are no moldy or soon-to-be-moldy pieces of fruit.
After you get the produce home, it is also important to take a few minutes to prepare it so that it can last as long as possible. No one likes to throw away food that they bought a few days ago.
Cook’s Illustrated has all the info you need on the best way to wash, dry and store your fresh berries. Rinse your berries in a vinegar and water solution to kill bacteria. This will prevent mold growth.
Fresh, local strawberries are one of my favorite things. I can’t wait until it’s strawberry season!
