Eating Moldy Fruit?

Summer is here, Strawberries, raspberries and blueberries, as well as peaches, plums and blackberries. But all this fresh produce also means that some may become moldy . If you accidentally eat a piece of fruit with mold, [chances are] nothing is going to happen,” according to Marianne Gravely, senior technical information specialist. Of course, some people are more sensitive than others, in that case you should see a doctor. For example, if a peach is completely soft and covered in mold, don’t eat it. But what about a piece of fruit that only has one spot that’s gone bad? Or what about the rest of the strawberries in a box that were sitting next to a moldy berry? just to look at all the berries. Sometimes it’s just mold dust, that’s fine, wash it off ― but sometimes there are berries that are kind of stuck together by the mold ― toss those. Here is a tip, If you bought berries, don’t wash them until ready to use. Water will actually cause them to grow spoiled……. Ed
