Tiny Tidbit: When to Rinse Fresh Berries

Hi Everyone!

My family buys loads of berries during the summer. We use them in fruit salads, smoothies, desserts and popsicles! Berries are great, but they do go bad quickly. What a lot of people don't know is that if you wash all of the berries at once and then put them in the fridge, they will go bad a lot quicker. The berries will get moldy and fuzzy in about a day!

What my family does is we only wash the amount of berries we're going to use right before we eat them. That way, the berries will keep for a couple more days. Green vegetable bags help keep berries fresh a little bit longer in the frig too. Be sure to freeze fresh berries so you can enjoy them later in the year.

Have a great summer!

Thanks for reading,
Lizzie Marie
