Hi,1)how to wash strawberries,blueberries & grapes? Do they have pesticide and chemicals on them?2) What is the white layer on blueberry and some grape, is it safe to eat if they still there after wash?Hope to hear soon, thank you.May

Rinse under running water- a colander is helpful to mix them around in and make sure you rinse all surfaces. The white layer is called the bloom, and it is nature’s preservative to stop the fruit from spoiling and drying out. It is definitely safe to eat.
