Fresh Berries

To keep berries fresh, place them on top of a paper towel in a sealed container to absorb excess moisture and reduce chances of molding.

Start by removing any moldy, crushed, or spoiled berries from the bunch as these will quickly cause the others to decay. Line the bottom of a clear, sealable container with a piece of paper towel, then loosely layer berries, making sure to put another piece of paper towel down before adding the next layer.

Make a quick and easy jam out of bruised berries. Use the tops to make Strawberry Top Vinegar

Tip: Do not wash berries until they are ready to be eaten as the excess moisture can cause molding.
