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