Get Fresh: Strawberries
Bring home these berries during the summer months. Learn how to pick and store them:
Choose berries that are plump and shiny, with bright green stems.
Store them in the refrigerator for up to five days. Trash any moldy berries ASAP.
Rinse under cool running water just before serving. Leave the stems on to prevent water from being absorbed and diluting the flavor.
Freeze rinsed and hulled berries in a single layer on a baking sheet before freezing in an airtight container.
