How I wash fruits and vegetables to remove pesticidies and harmful bacteria?



Unfortunately, we will not get rid of the chemistry that got inside in any way. However, I think that it is good to clean up even the skin on which the most pesticides are spread (do you know the sticky apple peel?). For me, this makes sense for most fruits - after all, I eat apples and pears with peel, i wipe a lemon for a rabarbar tarte or risotto, I candidized an orange peel, and vegetables - spinach, natka and so on.

So that no rain would wash away the pesticides from the beautiful, handsome surface, let's say apples, they are now used in an oily form. Tangibly not to be spotted, but pesticides sit on this skin, which you will see in the form of an oily sediment that will precipitate on the water.

How do you remove pesticides?

We will need:
🍎 water,
🍎 vinegar,
🍎 baking soda
🍎 two pots / bowls.

Step 1
We remove harmful bacteria (including E.Coli, Listeria, Salmonella) by soaking fruits/ vegetables for 2-3 minutes in acidic water (pH 2.5 - 3.5), ie:
* 1 liter of water + half a glass of vinegar (apple vinegar, wine vinegar, plainr any other - but supposedly the first two would be best) or 2-3 tablespoons of citric acid

Step 2
We remove pesticides - by soaking fruit / vegetables for 2-3 minutes in alkaline water (pH 10 - 11.5), you will need 1 liter water + 1 neat spoon of baking soda.

Just at this step, you will see it with a naked eye - on the surface of the water will show the fat, the water will become cloudy or yellowish. At the end. rinse products in clean water ant they are ready to eat.
