I’m not sure how many times I’ve bought strawberries, only to discover they’ve started to mold in a day to two.
Moisture increases mold time. So the key to storing strawberries is to reduce moisture.
Try this method of storing them. It only takes a minute to do after the trip to the market.
#1- Don’t wash the strawberries.
Having less layers will help reduce the strawberries on the bottom getting too much moisture (why having a wide/long container helps).
The paper towels help absorb moisture.
Using this method sometimes strawberries will keep up to 2 weeks.
