I am so excited about picking fresh strawberries soon. There is nothing better! Except when you pick them and they get moldy and yucky after just a day.
I learned this little tip that I wanted to share with you to easily get your fresh strawberries to last over a week in the refrigerator.
All you need is cold water and white vinegar The vinegar kills mold spores that are on the berries. And there is no taste of vinegar left on the strawberries either.
Just mix 2 cups of cold water and 1/2 cup of white vinegar in a large bowl and soak your fresh strawberries in it for about 20 minutes!
Drain in a colander and then lay the strawberries on a towel or paper towels to dry.
Store them in a bowl in the refrigerator. Mine have lasted more than a week and probably longer if we didn’t eat them that fast.
I am sharing this recipe at some of these great Weekly Linky Parties.
