There's nothing more tragic than paying $6 for a pint of local raspberries, only to look in the fridge the next day and find that fuzzy mold growing on their insides. I never knew it was so simple to correct this. Thanks to foodlushblog.com we have the answer.
When you get your berries home, prepare a mixture of one part vinegar (white or apple cider) and ten parts water. Dump the berries into the mixture and swirl around. Drain, rinse if you want (though the mixture is so diluted you can't taste the vinegar,) and pop in the fridge. The vinegar kills any mold spores and other bacteria on the surface. Raspberries will last a week or more, and strawberries go almost two weeks without getting moldy and soft.
