Usually when shoppers bring berries home from the supermarket or market, they leave them in the punnet or wash them, cut them up and put them in a container for later. Unfortunately some of the berries will probably go off before they get to eat them and even the best ones only last a couple of days.
A great way to help make your strawberries, blueberries, blackberries or other berries of choice last longer is to store them in a Mason jar or reusable glass jar with a firm closing lid. By doing this, you can extend the life of the fruit.
Berry Storing Tips:
🍓 Use a clean glass jar that's been washed and dried thoroughly.
🍓 Discard any spoiled or bruised fruit before you put fruit in the jar.
🍓 Do not remove the stem, and 'do not wash or rinse' the berries before storing them.
🍓 Close the lid tightly to make it airtight.
🍓 Place the jar in the coldest part of your refrigerator.
🍓 The berries will not get mouldy using this method 💚
🍓 When you take out the fruit wash them before eating.
