Fresh berries delight the day with sweet taste and handful of vitamins. However, most of the berries that we can find in the grocery stores in Dubai have unfortunately travelled for days before reaching us. Maybe you are concerned about preservatives or relatively short shelf life after the berries hit your fridge. Thankfully there is something that we can do to enjoy fresh berries safer and for longer! Washing berries in diluted vinegar bath will extend their shelf life and guarantee a fresh taste in a natural way.
All you need to wash your berries is white vinegar, water, bowl, salad spinner and some kitchen towels. To get started, mix 1 cup of vinegar with 3 cups of water in a bowl. Place the berries carefully in the diluted vinegar bath and swish them around. Next, rinse the berries in cold water to remove vinegar flavour and place them in the salad spinner lined with kitchen towels. Spin gently and leave the berries to dry before placing them to refrigerator.
The vinegar destroys bacteria and mold making your berries taste fresher for longer. Enjoy!
