How To Keep Berries Fresh
Once you bring your fresh berries home, the key to keeping it fresh is to kill any spores on the fruit.  The ph of vinegar does that job.
Place the berries in a large bowl and wash them in a vinegar-water bath:  1 cup of white vinegar and 3 cups of wate (this mixture works with other fruits and vegetables to remove dirt and pesticide residue)
Let the berries sit in the vinegar-water bath for approx. 5 - 10 minutes, gently moving them to help dislodge any dirt, grime and letting the vinegar kill spores and bacteria.
Drain the berries in a colander and then thoroughly rinse the fruit (to remove any vinegar flavor).
Thicker skinned fruit (like strawberries or blueberries) can be dried in a salad spinner but delicate berries such as raspberries and blackberries should be dried on a towel, patting them with paper or cloth towels.
Store the washed and dried fruit in a sealed container that has been lined with paper towels — if using an air-tight container, leave the lid slightly open to avoid natural moisture build-up. [1]
