Storing Strawberries

Bronze Feedback Medal for All Time! 147 Feedbacks

Stop strawberries from spoiling and make them last 7-10 days by washing berries well and setting them on a paper towel to dry. Turn them over after an hour. When they are completely dry, line the plastic box or container they came in with a paper towel. Put berries back in box and close lid. That's it. You'll rarely have to throw any of them away again.


I was desperate over loosing my berries to mold so one day I thought I would try doing this and, to my surprise, it worked. I bet if you tried the same thing with tomatoes, it will prevent them from over ripening too.

Wash the strawberries and put in any type of container and add a little 7up. They will last for more than a week.

I'm a caregiver and while atmy couples house I discovered a whole package of freshe strwberries were in the freezer uncovered or wrapped and still in the hard plastic container (the one with the holes in it) Can these be saved at all? Thanks in advance!
