My kids LOVE berries. They would probably make great *insert berry eating animal here*.
I don’t like them for 2 reasons:
1) they are EXPENSIVE!
2) they get moldy quickly.
Shopping in season helps the money aspect of buying berries. I bought 2 pack of raspberries and 1 pack of strawberries for $5 at the Farmer’s Market. Considering 1 pack of raspberries sells for $3.99 at Safeway, that’s a great deal!
As for their molding tendencies, which only happens when I don’t let my kids eat the whole container in one sitting, I found the answer to all of your prayers you’ve spoken about berries. Cuz who doesn’t pray about berries??
Rinse your berries is a solution of 1 part cider vinegar to 10 parts water.
On occasion, my berries are moldy the next morning (or even the first night!) but the following picture is 2 full days after I bought them!
Awesome, huh? Not a moldy one in the bunch!
After I rinsed them, I put them in my beloved FridgeSmart from Tupperware. (my friend, Elaine, is a Tupperware Consultant if you want to get your hands on one of these gems! I’ve had 1 small and 2 long rectangle ones since my days as a TW Consultant and LOVE them.)
