How to keep strawberries fresh longer

I LOVE strawberries, but am famous for not eating them all before they go bad.  Here is a really simple and quick way to make your strawberries last twice as long!
 Mix 1 part distilled white vinegar and 10 parts water (I did 1 cup vinegar, 10 cups water).
Let strawberries soak in vinegar and water for about 3-4 minutes.  The vinegar kills any mold spores and bacteria that cause the strawberries to rot.
 Drain, then store in uncovered container in fridge. I cut the lid off the original container from store so I didn't have to dirty another dish.
And there you have it, another simple way to save some money, and some food!  Oh, and no worries, your strawberries will NOT taste like vinegar.

Remember, if you love it, PIN IT!


  1. Nope! I forgot to add that in the post, so I just updated it.

  2. Awesome! Definitely doing this!

  3. Does this work on blackberries also?
