Fruit and Veggie Cleaning Tips

Something is taking big bites out of my tomatoes before they have a chance to ripen. It's been so hot and dry this growing season I'm certain it's a squirrel or a possum looking for moisture. The bite marks remind me I'm not always the first to handle my harvest and who knows where those "hands" have been. Whether it's produce from my own garden or something I've purchased at a farmer's market, it's always wise to clean fruits and vegetables properly before eating them.

Washing away unwanted bacteria and chemical residue is a quick process so there is no excuse for skipping this step when preparing a meal. The name of the game is to clean the fruit or vegetable itself to avoid transferring germs either to or from the food. Here are some tips.
