Fresh & Clean

Don’t you wish your store bought grapes came ready to eat? Sadly they don’t. Instead they arrive covered with a film that likely includes dirt and pesticides. Here’s a tip for thoroughly cleaning your grapes.

Before

  1. Place your grapes into a collander.
  2. Sprinkle your grapes with baking soda. The baking soda is your cleanser. 
  3. Sparingly sprinkle with sea salt. The sea salt acts as a scrubber. FYI don’t use too much  salt. The excess can leave a reside. You don’t want salty grapes. 
  4. Toss the grapes to cover with the mixture.
  5. Rinse thoroughly and allow to drain.
  6. Serve

After

These are grapes I can feel good about serving my family. How do you clean your fruit?
