Check

for "bloom," a powderlike finish on the skin. It indicates freshness and protects fruit from the sun.

Select

plump, indigo-colored berries with skin that's taut to the touch.

Discard

any shriveled or rotted berries before storing.

Store

in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

Rinse

just before using or eating.
