Extending the lifespan of your strawberry purchase is easy. Following this simple tip, you’ll not only be able to enjoy them longer, but also save money in the long run. If you are not using all of the berries that you purchased right away, remove them from the container they came in.
Without washing them, place berries in an airtight container, Tupperware will work, even a large Ziploc bag can be used. Once or twice a day, when reaching into the fridge, make it a habit to “burp” the container to release gases. All it takes is opening it and closing (do so outside of the fridge). When it’s time to enjoy, wash only the amount you are going to use.
Bonus Tip: If you see a berry that is slightly damaged, but still edible, use it first. Following these tips can extend the life of strawberries by as much as a week.
