Berry Wash

blueberry bushesWhen you notice (or are advised) that the berries you just spent your valuable time picking may need to be used up quickly, extend their life with this easy to use wash.  Mix 1 part white vinegar to 3 parts water (i.e. 1 c vinegar to 3 c water) in bowl.  Make sure you have enough to cover the berries when they are added to the bowl. Allow to sit for a few minutes and then dump berries into a colander.  Do not rinse.  Allow to drain fully, then place in your storage container and refrigerate.
