I bet you’re excited to indulge in some delicious raspberries! But before you dig in, let’s make sure they’re squeaky clean. Cleaning raspberries is quick and easy, and it ensures that you’re eating the best of this juicy fruit.
First things first, gently pour your raspberries into a colander. Rinse them under cool, running water, allowing the water to flow all over them. As you rinse, lightly rub the raspberries with your fingertips to remove any dirt or debris lingering on the surface.
Next, prepare a mixture of water and vinegar. For every cup of water, add one tablespoon of white vinegar. Submerge the raspberries into the mixture, and let them soak for about 5 minutes. The vinegar helps to kill any bacteria or mold that may be present.
Once the soaking time is up, drain the raspberries using the colander. Run cool water over them again to rinse off any vinegar residue. Gently shake the colander to remove excess water.
Finally, spread out some paper towels on your kitchen counter or a clean, lint-free dish towel. Place the rinsed raspberries on the towels, making sure they are in a single layer. Pat them dry with additional paper towels or gently roll them in the dish towel to absorb any remaining moisture.
There you go! Your raspberries are now clean and ready to be enjoyed in all their sweet, tart goodness.
Wash the raspberries gently in cold running water and remove any visible dirt or debris.
Inspect the raspberries carefully for any mold or spoilage. Discard any berries that are mushy or discolored.
