I love this time of year so much! All the farmers markets are amazing.
If you are anything like me though you still tend to worry about what might be on your produce. Whether it’s chemicals or just other peoples germs from touching it I like to know that my produce is super clean. Of course I love making this homemade produce wash to get the job done:
Before we utilize fruit in vegetables in any way, we are always careful to wash it. Especially fruits and vegetables that we’ll be eating raw (like the bowl full of cherries sitting next to me at the moment…). Finding organic produce locally (and at an affordable price) isn’t always an option. But so what! I’d much rather purchase conventional cherries from the farmer a mile up the road than be eating imported organic cherries from South America. It’s also very quick and easy to whip up a homemade produce wash that will help to remove any bacteria or pesticide residue left on the produce.
What is your favorite fruit or veggie to get this time of year?
