Smart Tip to Keep Berries Fresher Longer

Berries are powerful allies to your health. They are nutrient packed and deliciously sweet. The only down side to berries is their short shelf life. We often find ourselves racing to eat up all of our fresh berries before they go bad, which allows very little time to enjoy them. Over at The Kitchn we discovered an ingenious plan to prolong your berry self life. What is the secret? Wash your berries in a diluted vinegar bath (1 cup vinegar + 3 cups water). Than spin them dry in a salad spinner lined with paper towels. 
This works because the vinegar destroys bacteria and mold spores on your berries adding days and sometimes weeks to your berry life.
