Removing Wax from Veggies & Fruits

Teresa Moye Asks:
How do I get the wax off of store bought cucumbers? My daughter's batch that we made came out soggy and she had to through them away. Sad time

Teresa there are many commercial products you can buy, but there is no need to do so.  All you need to do is let them sit for a few minutes in water and vinegar. The vinegar will soften the wax if you let them sit a few minutes. Rub with your hands or a cloth. For stubborn wax use a soft brush and scrub gently. You can also use a little baking soda as a scrub. Rinse well under running water.
