First, there’s often dirt on them before they’re washed, and no one likes eating dirt. But the most important reason for rinsing and scrubbing fruits and vegetables is to protect yourself from foodborne illnesses. The goal with washing well is to decrease bacteria and prevent any illness, such as E. Coli. HOW TO WASH YOUR PRODUCE Start by properly washing your hands with soap or water, which ensures that no microbes are transferred from your hands to the fresh produce. When actually washing, use running water and rub fruits and vegetables briskly with your hands to remove dirt and surface microorganisms. For something with a hard rind or firm skin, a vegetable brush can be used to scrub the surface. A good tip is to avoid using hot water, which can allow microorganisms to enter the stem or blossom end of the produce. Happy washing !!
