Keeping Berries Fresh Longer

There’s nothing more disheartening than to buy berries, stick them in the fridge, then a couple days later you find them moldy and mushy!

I have found a way to keep my berries lasting MUCH longer and it’s so simple! Wash and cut berries, removing hulls, etc., then place them into a glass canning jar and cover with a lid. They will stay fresh all week for me when I do this!

Not only do they not go bad as quickly, it’s also so much more convenient to have them all prepped and ready to use! I think your family will be more prone to use berries that are ready for their morning breakfast, than if they have to wash and cut the fruit first!

You’ll have strawberries ready to add to the Angel Food Cake I shared this week, or to top onto your Baked Oatmeal, or yogurt and granola!

Refresh your berries with this simple method!

  1. I have also washed my berries in a vinegar and water bath for 10 minutes. This seems to help them stay fresh longer. You use 10 parts water to 1 part vinegar. Make sure the fruit is fully covered with the vinegar water. After 10 minutes pour the berries into a colander and rinse. Then lay them out on a paper towel to dry.

  2. Ah thanks for this tip! I’ve almost stopped buying berries because we just do not eat them fast enough. Goodness, they go mushy fast! Maybe this will help!
