Go from this to this  

How many of you have bought strawberries, or raspberries etc. – put them in the refrigerator and when you decided to use them you found a furry mold on them?  You never noticed it at the store – however, because the furry is usually at the bottom of the container or on the inside of the berries. What can you do? How can you keep them fresh? Prevent them from getting mold as soon as you get them home from the store. RINSE THEM WITH VINEGAR WATER !

Prepare a mixture of one part white or apple cider vinegar and ten parts water in a bowl. Place the berries into the water/vinegar mixture and swirl around. Drain and rinse again gently. Now you can put them in the refrigerator. They will keep for up to 2 weeks. The vinegar kills any mold spores and other bacteria that might be on the surface of the fruit. Now don’t forget to eat them.

TRY AND ENJOY!
