Here’s a trick for how to clean strawberries! It removes surface bacteria and residue, and extends the life of the fruit.


  • 1 pound fresh strawberries


  1. Add 3 cups cold water and 1 cup vinegar to a bowl. Add the strawberries and gently toss. Soak for 5 minutes.
  2. Drain and rinse the berries with thoroughly cold tap water (this removes the vinegar flavor). Pat the berries dry with a clean towel, then place them in a sealed container and store in the refrigerator. Berries can last up to 2 weeks.
