Lifehacks: how to keep berries from molding

Are you on Pinterest? It's such an awesome site and very very addicting. You can follow my pins and boards, here.

It's a great place for inspiration, ideas and solutions to problems like keeping your berries from molding. The magic trick via FoodLush? Vinegar!

"When you get your berries home, prepare a mixture of one part vinegar (white or apple cider probably work best) and ten parts water. Dump the berries into the mixture and swirl around. Drain, rinse if you want (though the mixture is so diluted I find you can't taste the vinegar,) and pop in the fridge. The vinegar kills any mold spores and other bacteria that might be on the surface of the fruit, and voila! Raspberries will last a week or more, and I've had strawberries go almost two weeks without getting moldy and soft. "

I tried this trick and it indeed works! I was worried the berries would taste like vinegar but they didn't!
