3. Wash the berries

The easiest way to wash the raspberries and strawberries is to soak them in cold water with some drops of vinegar for about 10 minutes, this will get rid of pesticide residue. Always try to buy organic strawberries, as they topped this year’s Dirty Dozen list as the most heavily pesticide-contaminated fruit.
