Kitchen Quick Tips - Washing Produce

kitchen quick tipsProduce can have pesticide residue unless it has been organically grown.  Even then it should be washed before consuming.  Place the produce in the sink with fresh soapy water.  Wash to remove any soil.  Rinse.  Cover with fresh water and about 2 tbsp of white vinegar.  Let sit for 15 minutes.  Drain and dry.
