How to Store Strawberries

How to Store Strawberries: Store berries in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Discard any berries that show signs of mold—it spreads quickly to other berries. Wash the berries gently in cool water just before you plan to eat them, leaving the caps on until after they are washed. To freeze strawberries, hull and wash berries. Pat them dry. Spread in a single layer on a tray, cover with plastic wrap and freeze until solid. Pack the frozen fruit into sealable plastic bags, taking care to remove air from the bags. Freeze for up to 1 year.
