How to properly wash berries
It's really important to properly wash berries to remove dirt and tiny bugs. Also, lots of hands have touched the berries before they get to you. Rinsing under the sink does not quite do the job.
Choose organic berries, grapes, and cherries. They rank high on the list of pesticides. It's hard to wash the pesticides off and are harmful to everyone. Especially, harmful to children.
This washing method works for all berries, grapes, and cherries.
Add berries to a large bowl. You don't want to crowd the berries. (Wash in multiple batches.) Fill the bowl with enough water to cover the berries.
Pour out the dirty water and fill the bowl with water again. Repeat the previous step at least one more time.
Now you have perfectly washed berries.
