The Very Best Way to Keep Strawberries Fresh for Weeks
The cure for summer berry heartbreak is in your kitchen cupboard.
You know how it goes. Seduced by the beautiful berries at the farmers market, you buy all you can carry. That fragrance, that flavor, it’s fleeting, you know, so you grab them while you can. Once you get home, you put them in the fridge and two days later, they’re covered with mold and have turned to mush.
Well, not anymore. Storing strawberries in a glass jar can help them stay fresh for weeks at a time. Transfer unwashed berries to a jar (a Mason jar is perfect for this) seal with a lid and pop it in the refrigerator. That’s it. Your berries will stay fresh and flavorful for at least two weeks, sometimes longer.
