The comment said " WOW - great reminder". I removed the content by accident, sorry Christine!Yes - it is gross to see what is in the water when you are done
I really need to do this more. I rinse them off under running water but I don't know how clean they get.
I used to do the same; then I read that soaking in water/vinegar can help them last longer. So I did - and was amazed at the bottom of the bowl afterwards - gross.
MMMM strawberries, my favorite of all. Now I am hungry!
my favorite fruit too!
Yikes, I never think of strawberries as being so dirty. I always just sprayed them in a colander, but I will be more diligent now. How much vinegar did you put in the soaking water Ashley?
I filled the bowl with water and about 2tbsp (maybe slightly more) vinegar. Then i transfer them to a collander and rinse off
EEwww, just never realized how much dirt was on the berries. Usually just a quick rinse but that is about to change.Patricia, Sugar & Spice & All Things ? Nice
thanks for visiting Patricia. I also used to just do a quick rinse...
not so appealing to see the after picture
Great reminder to wash our fruits and veggies!
YES - it is amazing what is on them that we don't actually see
I had no idea there was so much dirt on strawberries. That bowl of strawberries looks delicious!
