Make your strawberries last for weeks instead of days using this tip!
I stocked up on strawberries early last week at WinCo. They have their strawberries on sale for $1.48 for a 2lb package. I saw this tip on making your strawberries last longer (I can’t even remember where now) but I tried it and this bunch of strawberries lasted for almost two WEEKS in the fridge after using this soak on them! It is really easy, all you need are strawberries, vinegar and water! *Note* this will work on any type of berries.
Mix one part vinegar with 10 parts water. I used 5 cups water to 1/2 cup vinegar. The vinegar kills the mold spores that are already growing on the berries so it lengthens the shelf life!
I soaked them for 2 minutes and drained them.
I suppose you could rinse them with water but I didn’t. There was absolutely no hint of a vinegar taste at all!
I washed out the original container and stored them back in it because it has nice ventilation. I am sure you could use any container.
Store them in the refrigerator or a cool location.
