Storing Strawberries...Kitchen Tip

Wednesday, June 17, 2015

Today I'm sharing with you a great Kitchen Tip for strawberries.  You come home from the grocery store or farmer's market with strawberries.  They look amazing.  You've eaten a few, but want to save the rest for a special recipe in a few days.  What's the BEST way to store strawberries?  Let's find out!

  Do not wash the strawberries.  
Strawberries are like sponges and will soak up all the water causing them to spoil.
You can clean the strawberries with a slightly dampened paper towel to remove any dirt.  
 Check to see if any of the strawberries are moldy. 
 If there are any, remove them immediately and discard them.  

Remove the strawberries from their original package
Line a plastic container with a piece of paper towel or napkin and place the strawberries inside the container, only do not crowd the container.  The paper towel will collect any extra moisture that the strawberries have.

Do not cover the container.
Cover the strawberries lightly with another piece of paper towel and place the container in the refrigerator.  

If you follow these simple steps, your strawberries will remain fresh for a few days until you're ready to enjoy them and use them for some delicious recipes such as these...
