Ordinary Wisdom


I have filled a bowl with water and 1/4 c. Vinegar. Soak for 2 min. Then dry fruit completely. I store strawberries and blueberries and lettuce, etc.…in mason jars in the fridge. They last a long time.

I have a spray bottle of white vinegar I use on my produce, let it sit, then rinse.

I use the technique from Cross Legacy too! I’ve been really impressed how well it works. The key is drying the produce all the way before packing it in mason jars or bags and putting in the fridge as soon as it’s done.

Basically, because of degradation, I always wait to wash just before I prepare something.  I spray everything with a concentrated veggie wash I get at Trader Joe’s ($4 for 16 oz; I need @2 tsp to make a 24 oz spray bottle). It is mostly GSE (Grapefruit seed extract), which is an amazing antifungal, antibacterial, antimicrobial and antiviral, killing all kinds of microbes. Then, always scrub those hardy fruits and veggies additionally, I was told by nutritionist. Some people soak a few minutes in a bath of about 10-20 drops of GSE and water; rinse well. Super important for both parasites and all of the number of surfaces that our food comes in contact with. Even those with outer surfaces you won’t eat because you are cutting through that to get to the interior, which has now come in contact due to the knife.

This is a Grapefruit seed extract concentrate product. Only need a couple of drops in your spray bottle filled with water.
