How To Keep Strawberries Fresh

Ever since I found out strawberries were listed on the “Dirty Dozen” as some of the most pesticide-ridden foods, I’ve always bought organic for the kiddos, who looooove strawberries.

And strawberries are a Superfood–so well worth the cost to me.  But organic fades even faster, so I found this excellent advice, courtesy of The Frugal Girls:

To keep the strawberries fresh longer in the refrigerator, use 1 Part White Vinegar to 10 Parts Water.  Soak the strawberries, leaves and all in the vinegar/water mixture for a few minutes.  Then drain the strawberries in a colander until they are completely dry.

Then I place my strawberries in an uncovered bowl in the refrigerator.  The vinegar/water mixture kills any mold spores on the strawberries and keeps them fresh longer.  The vinegar does not affect the taste.  This also works for all kinds of berries: blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, etc.  It really works!!”
