Wash fruit as you go!

Here's a tip today for all you fruit lovers like myself who will buy pints of blueberries and blackberries for personal consumption: Wash them as you go, or just before you eat them. The reason for this, is if you bring home that pint of blueberries and wash them all at once, you are washing away the preserving chemicals that are keeping them from getting moldy. Your blueberries will last a lot longer in the fridge this way. Of course the best way to eat them is fresh picked, but as it's in the middle of winter right now and most berries are not in season, this is the way to do it.
