Can you resist buying too many berries in the summertime?

For me it’s become a terrible trouble. They just LOOK so good!
Inevitably, I’m confronted with berry guilt when we’re not able to eat them all before interesting things begin to grow
So when I ran across this tip from Cook’s Illustrated – rinse them in a mixture of white vinegar and water. I couldn’t help but wonder, does it work?
They say to add a healthy splash of vinegar to a bowl of water, submerge the berries, drain, and store them in the fridge in a little dish lined with a paper towel.
Fear not, you can’t taste the vinegar, and the berries stay fresh for at least a week. According to The Kitchn, the vinegar kills any bacteria and mold spores that linger on the fruit.
What do you think? I’m going to give it a try
I’d love to know if you’ve tried it and how it’s worked for you, or if you have any berry tricks up your sleeve
Have the happiest of Saturdays!
