Washing fruits and veggies

leave a comment »

The Wife called in with some info she gleaned from NPR. Cook’s Illustrated tested many ways of washing fruits and veggies, including the special fluids sold for that purpose. The best way of all: a solution of 1 part vinegar to 3 parts water. You can put it in a spray bottle for things like apples, plums, and the like: spray on, dry off. For lettuce, broccoli, and that sort of thing, put the solution in a pot and let the veggies soak a bit, then rinse them under water.
