Storage and prep tips – Always make sure to give your fresh strawberries a good wash before consuming. To make them last longer soak them in a vinegar and water solution, this will be made up of ¼ cup of vinegar and 1 ½ cups of water (double the quantities if you have more berries to soak). Place the strawberries into the solution for 5 minutes and then place them in a colander and rinse with water, the berries wont taste like vinegar at all as you wash it all off in this step! Pat dry the berries and then line the container you plan to store them in with paper towel, cover with a lid and they should last 1-2 weeks!
To refrigerate or not to refrigerate? Glass of water on the counter? Just what is the best way to store herbs? It’s time to set the record straight.
