Everyone’s wild about berries. Blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries can set off your fruit salad. If they’re nice and ripe, you won’t need to worry about that tart taste you feel in your cheeks. But if your berries expire too soon, it can damper your meal plans. Thankfully there are ways to extend the storage life of your produce.
In a recent TikTok video by content creator @shazoshop4u, she shares her hack for prolonging the freshness of berries. It’s a neat idea that won’t cost you much money. You probably have what you need already in the pantry. We’re sure you’re wondering how long you went without knowing this hack. We're asking the same thing!
Now we’re ready to properly clean our berries before putting them inside the fridge. People use vinegar for many things, and now soaking berries are added to that list. Let’s see if the TikTok community knew about this hack or if they were surprised. User @Stacy Epps wrote, “Thank you.” @poodles3650 said, “Thanks! I love this idea.” @gregorycox880 replied, “Thank you. I didn't know this.” However, not everyone was impressed by this hack. User @billytoaster exclaimed, “A cup of vinegar in my berries! No, thank you!” @AWD_Hellcat chided, “Too much effort. They are going right in the fridge in the packaging they came in.”
We always say to do what works best for you. If you don’t want to take the time to prolong your berries' storage life, that’s your choice. But we like hacks to help us get the most bang for our buck. To learn more helpful hacks visit @shazoshop4u’s TikTok channel.
