Let’s talk about weekly fruit prep.
Nature’s candy!

All of our children would eat more, if they had easy access to clean fresh fruit.
But how to keep it fresh?

***Fresh Berry Prep:

(Buy in larger quantities when on sale/or in season. You can freeze the extra! Btw…purchasing FROZEN berries is an excellent way to save time & money. Frozen fruit is great for smoothies and retains it’s nutritional value.

***Rinse berries and grapes with a Tablespoon of apple cider vinegar to a cup of cool fresh water- rinse again & let dry well then store in glass jars (let air dry VERY well first).

I have found that if the berries/grapes are truly ready to grab & eat, we use them faster. I’m more likely to throw them on oatmeal on busy mornings, or as a snack if they are all ready.

***The apple cider vinegar is an excellent natural cleaning agent, that I believe prolongs the life of the berries…if you let them air dry completely before stroring.

Another tip, is placing a folded paper towel on the top/inside you glass jar, to absorb moisture.

These berries usually last me 4-5 days in the refrigerator when stored correctly.

Moisture is the enemy.?

***How to prep apple slices for the week ahead so that they don’t turn brown:

Soak slices in a large bowl of cold lemon water.

This method works better than squeezing the lemon directly on the apples. Plus, they won’t be super lemony.

Ratio: 1 tablespoon of lemon juice per 1 cup of water.

These usually last about a week in the refrigerator when stored correctly.

***Cube melon, and store refrigerated in glass for 4-5 days.
