This is brilliant.

CANNOT wait to try this out! Moldy berries always happen to me.

You all seriously are some of my favorite people ever-making kitchens happy since 2010!




Yeah, you're a miracle worker.


There are various benefits which accrue by having a used car. The most important, you can say probably the only responsible factor, in going for a used car is its cost. It costs a lot less than new car. Besides cost other factor which creates a huge demand for Used Cars In India is the fact that a large number of car users prefer to go with a Used Car before investing their hard-earned money in new cars.


Does it make them taste like vinegar?


Katie, this is fantastic. Thank you!

Brian, Katie answers that in the article.

I have brand new raspberries in my fridge just waiting for this treatment. Fantastic!

Marj Eldard

Who knew?!?!? That is brilliant. I'm anticipating picking my raspberry patch this evening and will most certainly try this!


Marj Eldard


Will it work with blue berries also?


AAAHHHHHHH!! Thank you, thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!! I sooo needed this. Will do, and share. :D

Sarah Booth

This information makes me sooooooo HAPPY!!!


Ok, so once you do this how do you store the berries in the fridge?


Lisa- I've never tried it with blueberries, but I don't see why not-- I tend not to have blueberries go bad on me as quickly as, say, raspberries. But the vinegar wash certainly can't hurt- it'll clean any icky stuff off the berries for a lot less than a fancy fruit wash product.


For raspberries, I drain thoroughly, then line a bowl with a paper towel and toss them in there. For strawberries, I just store them in a small mesh colander right in the fridge.

How about grapes? My biggest problem has always been grapes.

Cris Ronk

This is a tip that is useful and more importantly... easy to remember.

Val @ mental chew

Thanks! No more icky berries.

Great Tip!
i've got a site called Foodhealer.com and I've posted this page as the lead story. (http://foodhealer.com/) I hope that's Ok, if not please contact me and I'll remove it ASAP.

Thanks and take care!


I am so happy I had this link shared with me. I am entering a lot in our local country fair and I lost FIVE batches of strawberries before I was able to slice and prep/freeze them. I am going to do this with the batch I get this weekend.


What a great tip! I love fresh berries, but I cry when they mold!

Adam McPherson

Super Tip! I already use vinegar for a great number of things. But looky here I have just learned a new use. :) Thank you so much!

Cake Phillington

Totally works! My raspberries usually only last a day or two and most of the time they either go to waste or I avoid buying. Tried washing them in apple vinegar and they stayed fresh for a week. So happy I can buy berries without fearing anymore.

I tried this and my strawberries were still moldy 2 days later.


My dog's holistic vet recommends to wash all fruit/vegetables with apple cider vinegar because it's healthier, natural, and now I know that it kills mold spores! I've been doing it for a couple years now, but I've never noticed that it makes fruits last longer. To be fair, I don't like to leave fruits especially raspberries alone too long in the refrigerator :)


wondering whether this would work with all produce ... why not?
