Do We Wash Our Produce?

  Hey... Wash that Beet, Adam!

Hey... Wash that Beet, Adam!

This is a common question from folks, and it's a fair one that I couldn't help but think of this week when washing our carrots!  They are sooo covered in dirt as we harvest them, you could never eat them in that condition (without a trip to the dentist).  So yes, depending on the vegetable, we use a sprayer, wash tanks, and big professional salad spinner to bring you clean produce.  Should you still wash your produce?  Not right away when you get it home, because produce that's too wet can spoil quickly in the fridge, but I always recommend one more rinse before you eat or cook with our produce.
