Instructions for my husband: You have to wash raspberries before eating them.

Actually, you have to wash all fruit before eating it - apples, pears, grapes, and yes, raspberries. Also, blueberries, blackberries, gooseberries, and huckleberries.

You do not have to wash bananas, melons or other fruit with a rind or other similar protective casing. Like a mango, you don't have to wash a mango.

And last, you need to wash raspberries, and other fruit, every single time. Especially when you're feeding it to kids. And extra-especially when you're feeding it to our kids. Seriously. Every f&^ing time.

This is my fourteenth post in my ongoing series Instructions for My Husband.

Eventhough we buy strictly organic food, we do wash everything. I learned that you should wash foods with a rind as well because of the bacteria on the outside can get on the inside while slicing...ewww.

BUT I still let them eat our homegrown orgo raspberries straight from the garden :)
