What I do not like about this arrangement is that I do not always get fruit that doesn't have a waxy type spray that has been added to it and sometimes leaves an undesireable taste on the fruit. Short of running my fruit through the dishwasher (just kidding) I wanted a good way to cleanse the fruit naturally so I wasn't adding anything else processed to it.
Here is what I came up with. I wash my fruit with lemon essential oil. I just add 3 drops of oil over the fruit, fill a bowl with water to cover the fruit, swirl around a few mintues and then strain the water off. Fruit is cleansed, tastes fantastic with just a hint of lemon and I feel better about serving it to the kids! Oh, and bonus...when I do apple slices this way it also keeps them from browning! (and uses a whole lot less then if I use lemon juice).
