Food Inspiration From Great Restaurants

We have been on vacation this past week and we ate breakfast and lunch in our condo, then enjoyed eating our main meal out each day.

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!
