“Vinegar is a wonderful organic tool that was discovered by accident 10,000 years ago when wine was accidentally allowed to ferment too long and turned sour.” 

So says Howard Garrett, also known as The Dirt Doctor, who has compiled a number of uses for vinegar, including recipes for both internal use and use in your organic garden.  Our good friend and  raw food advocate, Dr. Joseph Mercola, passed-along some of these tips on his website a few weeks back.  I saved the link:

Simple Trick Removes Pesticides from Your Vegetables & Fruits

Just add 10% of this 10,000 year old discovery to 90% water as a bath and briefly soak your produce. Swish it around and rinse thoroughly and enjoy.

Good to know.  I only rinse my veggies under running water for 30 seconds or so before I use them.  Adding a vinegar dip is one simple step that should help ease my piece of mind.

Feel good and keep smiling!  Pat
