Biting into bright red strawberries is heavenly, don't you agree. The sweet and sour juicy mix can easily make you fall in love with these berries. Not only are they mouth-watering, but also possess numerous health benefits.
Other than being rich in vitamin C, they also contain manganese, folate, potassium, B vitamin and other essential minerals and vitamins. Despite their super health benefits, who would like to bite into a mushy, flavourless and watery strawberry that can completely put you off?
So, it is extremely important to identify the fresher ones while buying. Let us guide you on how to store these juicy delights. Here are some tips and tricks to store the fresh lot to enjoy later and make them last long.
Do not wash the strawberries after you have bought them, unless you want to eat them. Strawberries soak up the water, which may make the berry mushy and inedible. Therefore, wash them right before consumption or use.
If you are not planning to eat the strawberries immediately, you should ideally freeze them so that they don't spoil.
Even if you keep them in the fridge for a while to enjoy them slightly cold, make sure you wrap them in a paper towel in order to prevent dampness.
If you plan to eat them in an hour or two, make sure you don't pluck off their stems. So, even if you grab them after two hours, you will find them fresh and ready to be devoured.
