This is such a great little tip, discovered in a women’s magazine no less! Works wonderfully well.

When you get your berries home from the supermarket/grocery, make a mixture of one part vinegar (white or apple cider) and ten parts water. Dump the berries into the mixture and swirl around. Drain, rinse if you want (though the mixture is so diluted you can’t taste the vinegar) and put in the fridge. The vinegar kills any mold spores and other bacteria on the surface. Raspberries will last a week or more, and strawberries go almost two weeks without getting moldy and soft.

No more throwing out berries that have spoiled before you can enjoy them. Yay!
