How does this technique work? The apple cider vinegar helps kill any present bacteria on the berries and prevents new bacteria from growing. It also helps remove any chemical residue or debris, keeping your berries fresh.
Will my fruit taste like vinegar? As long as you rinse the berries after the apple cider vinegar soak, there won’t be any vinegar taste.
Is it time-consuming? Not at all! This berry prepping technique takes just 5 minutes, but it will save you money and prevent food waste in the long run.
Do I have to store the berries in glass? No, you can use plastic containers too. However, many people find that storing berries in glass containers helps them stay fresh a bit longer.
Will this technique work for other produce? Yes, you can use this prepping technique for other fruits and vegetables to keep them fresh for longer.
Can I use white vinegar instead of apple cider vinegar? Yes, white vinegar will work just as well.
If you have extra produce that you won’t use immediately, freeze it right away. Frozen fruits and vegetables are convenient additions to smoothies, soups, baked goods, and more.
Don’t let your greens go to waste. Use any extra greens you have to make pesto or sauces.
Get creative with your fresh fruit. Muddle it and mix it with sparkling water for a refreshing seltzer.
By following these tips and tricks, you can not only enjoy fresh berries for weeks but also make a positive impact on reducing food waste.
