Keep Strawberries Fresh in the Fridge Longer

Strawberry season is upon us! Until now, my fresh, organic strawberries have lasted a day or three in the refrigerator, whether home grown or bought from the farmer’s market. 


A couple of weeks ago I googled “how to keep strawberries fresh in the refrigerator” and there were some interesting methods. I decided to try the jar method, and must pass along the results! I’ve been able to keep strawberries fresh in the fridge for over a week!


The method is simple: 

  • Don’t wash your strawberries. 
  • Separate the molding ones, or ones with soft spots or bruising. Place the good ones in a glass jar, preferably wide mouth (easier to get in/out). 
  • Top with a paper towel or other absorbent material and put a lid on it.
  • Keep the jar on its side and turn the jar daily. 

That’s it!

I would love to hear if you have tried this method and if it works for you!

Enjoy :)
