Here’s just a quick tip that could save your fruits and veggies, and that means your money.
I don’t know about you, but I grocery shop for my family once a week, and I load up. That used to mean that I had to organize my fresh produce in order of decay, so that we could eat them before they would go all yuck in my fridge. Sometimes, though, I wouldn’t feel like eating blueberries in time, but I would choke them down anyway, just to avoid the guilt of seeing them rot.
Thank goodness for Distilled White Vinegar. No more guilt-binging berries.
Soak all of your fresh produce in enough water to cover the tops of everything. Throw in a cup or two of distilled white vinegar, depending on how much water you have to use. Let everything soak for about 10 minutes. (warning: when you see all the dirt at the bottom of your sink, you may be overcome with a sense of superiority because of how much cleaner your food is than your neighbors — just be cool).
Rinse it all off very well and lay them all out to dry completely.
Now you can put them in your fridge to eat when you are ready.
Basically, you’re rinsing off all the crud that consumes your produce before you do. I’m not a scientist, but that’s my hypothesis. Makes sense to me. And you also save time later because you can just grab and go.
Happy Lazy Eating!
