Pinned It Did It–Fruit Wash

I have seen this fruit wash several times on Pinterest and my father-in-law actually mentioned it as a helpful hint.  Since he was hip on it I thought I better try it out to see if it actually worked.  So I bought my regular batch of fruit from Costco and brought it home, washed it in a mixture of white vinegar and water.

I believe the suggestion I used was from Food Lush Blog.  I have put it on my Pinned It Did It Pinterest Board which you can follow here.

This wash called for 1 part vinegar (white or apple cider) and 10 parts water.  Well I eyeballed it and here are the results.

After soak in vinegar wash.  I washed the strawberries, blackberries and raspberries in the wash.

5 days later.  Most all of the fruit was in good shape.  The raspberries were better off than without the wash but I think due to their fragile nature they were more mashed than the other fruit.  All in all I would recommend using this technique on your fruit to help extend the life of the summer gems.
