Spoil No More: Berries

How to keep raspberries freshNothing puts a dent in your day like discovering moldy, wrinkled fruits and veggies in your kitchen. This week, we'll share four natural tricks to keep your produce fresher, longer! 

Case #1: Moldy Berries 

The tragic tale of berries gone bad too soon (but they were so young!) doesn't have to plague your kitchen any longer. All you have to do (as demonstrated in the video below) is take your berries, soak them in a bowl of vinegar and water, dry in a salad spinner, and put in a partially sealed, towel-lined bowl and voila! — they will be mold-free for up to seven days! Hopefully by that time you'll have already used them in a delicious berry smoothie

Case #2: Browning Avocados

Case #3: Ailing Apples

Case #4: Atrophied Asparagus

Bonus Recipe: Kale Krispies
