    I love fresh berries, there is nothing worse than taking out a box of raspberries and finding mold on the bottom of them. So do this and extend their freshness

    take 1 part white vinegar to 3 parts cold water--move them around in a bowl or salad spinner for about 45 seconds to a minute. Drain them and dry them. Keep them in the fridge in a loosely closed container or back in the package them came in (cleaned)

    pop them in the fridge and enjoy

    Ok! I'll try it! Don't waste your money on these: (The bags work really well for lettuce and vegetables. But these boxes don't work on berries worth a shit.)

    you can rinse them after the first soak to get rid of any vinegar flavor, I usually don't bother --

    Those green bags work really well for berries.

    bananas too---If you want to keep your bananas from ripening too fast, separate them from the bunch
