Berries

All those delicious berries are so good for you but they seem to wilt before your eyes. No problem;  rinse them in a solution of vinegar and water (1 cup vinegar to 3 cups water). This helps prevent mold and bacteria. After washing be sure to rinse them under cool water thus eliminating the vinegar taste. Dry them thoroughly and place them in a container lined with paper towels – do not seal the lid but leave it partially open. Your berries will stay fresher longer.
