Life is Just a Bowl of Cherries

Conversation today at the cherry display
in the grocery store:

Man #1:  Do you think these cherries have been washed enough for me to eat them while I'm traveling in my car?

Me: No.

Man #1:  Oh, you think there will be dirt and pesticide residue on them?

Me:  Well that, and think of all the hands that have picked through this bin.

Man #1:  So you think I shouldn't get them?

Me:  No, I'd get them but I'd take them to the bathroom and wash them in the bag a few times.

Man #1:  Great idea!  I never thought of that!

Man #2:  At home, I always wash my fruits and veggies in the sink with some vinegar.

Me:  I just read about that on Pinterest.

So, what I read on Pinterest is to fill a clean sink
with cool water and 1 cup of vinegar and let produce
soak for 15 minutes.  The bottom of the sink will be
dirty but your produce will be clean.  Rinse
produce, pat dry and store as usual.
I'm going to give this a try.

This is our favorite way to serve cherries.
Place in a bowl with cold water and ice.
