Soaking Berries to Keep Them Fresh Longer

This one's easy. Strawberries and blueberries don't last through the week for us without this method. With it, we still have crisp berries for nearly 2 weeks!

How to Soak Berries and Keep Them Fresh Longer

1 cup white distilled vinegar
1 sink full of cold water
1 colander

Fill sink with water and vinegar to height that won't allow berries to float out of the colander, place colander in sink, and the berries go in the colander.

Easy peasy. Let em soak for 45 minutes, shaking the colander every 15 minutes to dislodge any dirt.
Rinse with cool water, pat dry. I store mine in Rubbermaid containers with a folded paper towel in the bottom.
