quick berry trick

My kids love berries, especially this time of year when the deliciousness is so plentiful. Unfortunately most berries are inclined to disintegrate into moldy mush in the blink of an eye.

But it turns out there's an answer! Best of all, it uses my go-to solution for almost every household problem: vinegar. Quickly soak the berries in a solution of vinegar and water, then rinse them off before putting them in the fridge with a paper towel at the bottom of your container. Voila! Berries for five days and counting.


  1. I may have to try this. We kind of over picked strawberries today. We were aiming for 10 pounds. Picked over 20 pounds. And I don't like strawberries.

  2. WOW! Love vinegar. Thanks for the tip.
