Have you seen the price on vegetable washes lately? It’s horrible! My good friend, Gina, asked me how I wash my vegetables and I thought I’d show you:
I run my sink with an inch or two of water (more if I am washing a lot of stuff) and then pour in four cups of vinegar and a handful of salt. I then swish it with my hand until the salt dissolves.
Now I gently massage each vegetable or fruit in the salt/vinegar water. I then rinse.
The best time to wash your vegetables is before you put them away. If you wait until you are pulling them out while preparing a meal — you will be frustrated and possibly forget to do it altogether.
