Steps

  1. 1
    Just remember, for every 4 parts water, we're going to use 1 part vinegar
    .
    We have our water ready, so let's add our vinegar.

    We're going to set it in that solution, and we're going to leave it to sit there for about 10 to 15 minutes
    .
    This will make sure that if there is any bacteria or pesticides, it helps to remove a lot of that for us.

    Don't worry about a vinegar taste because once it has sat for that long, we're going to strain in a colander
    .

    Then, we're going to rinse it
    .
    We can quickly rinse it using the colander and pouring water over it. Alternatively, some people prefer to actually fill the bowl again with water, and leave it to soak for a while before rinsing it. Some people are a little bit nervous about the vinegar flavor. We don't find there is any vinegar flavor after rinsing it like this. It's a very safe way without having to purchase any cleaners and chemicals, and that sort of thing.

    That's pretty much it
    !
    We're going to rinse it, we're going to put it back in our bowl, and we're going to consume it, use it for cooking, or refrigerate it - however we want to serve our produce. We could bake it in a pie maybe. Once it's thoroughly rinsed, put it in a bowl, and it's ready to go.
