It always frustrates me when I read an article or hear someone say it’s not important to wash berries. They’re too delicate. I’ve even read that raspberry skins are so thin they let water in so don’t wash. I wonder what happens when it rains???
We were at a restaurant many years, a very well known and well regarded place. When I went to the dessert table, the bowl of raspberries looked like it was moving. The berries were covered with tiny bugs. Yuk!
What you do need to do is wash delicate berries gently in a bowl of cold water and then scoop them out with your hands into a colander. It’s that simple!
