What am I doing?

Well we don’t celebrate Halloween, so bobbing for apples is out. haha

Oh wait, there is tomatoes, a cucumber and even some romaine! I am soaking my fruits and veggies in a 15 minute home made veggie wash, courtesy of Jester.

Now we all know organic is supposed to be best. But it isn’t always cheap or available. I think the bell peppers are $5.00 a lb at the health store! That is alot. I should make a trip over to the farmers market next Thursday. Last time I was disappointed though. We bought a 25 lb bag of oranges and most of them were dried up! That was a few months ago and we haven’t gone since.

Anyhow this doesn’t get rid of the pesticides that have gotten inside the fruit, but it does clean them. Think of all the yucky stuff that happens to them en route to your store. Or even while at the store. I try to buy organic at my regular grocery store, but their organic section is very limited and the produce doesn’t move fast enough so invariably it is already turning bad.

Jester gave me her permission to post this here. Hope this is THE recipe cause this is how I remember it. haha

1 gallon of water
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup hydrogen peroxide

Mix it all together. Let fruits/veggies soak for 15 minutes. Scrub them with a veggie brush and I place mine on a paper towel in huge bowls til they dry. Water tends to stay some in the bottom of bowl so make sure produce is dry and transfer it to another dry container.

Do you eat organic only? Or just when you are able?

EDIT. I just wanted to add that Jester has a friend who is a biochemist and said this recipe is a good one. 🙂
