Do you love Strawberries?? I sure do! I love them fresh, in Fruit Kabobs, in Very Berry Smoothies, in Freezer Jam, in No-Crust Strawberry Pie, in Strawberry Almond Chocolate Trifles, in Fruity Lemonade Slush… yep ~ pretty much all the time! 😉
“Since strawberries are starting to show up at the grocery stores, and will soon be at the Farmer’s Markets, I thought I would share a little trick that my good ol’ Mom told me about.
To keep the strawberries fresh longer in the refrigerator, use 1 Part White Vinegar to 10 Parts Water. Soak the strawberries, leaves and all in the vinegar/water mixture for a few minutes. Then drain the strawberries in a colander until they are completely dry.
Then I place my strawberries in an uncovered bowl in the refrigerator. The vinegar/water mixture kills any mold spores on the strawberries and keeps them fresh longer. The vinegar does not affect the taste. This also works for all kinds of berries: blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, etc. It really works!!”
