Berries

Refrigerate berries in a covered shallow container. Use raspberries within 1 to 3 days; blackberries within 3 to 5 days.

Rinse berries under cool running water just before using. Moisture during storage speeds spoilage.

To store longer:

  1. Freeze whole berries on a tray until firm.
  2. Package in freezer containers or re-sealable plastic bags.
  3. Label with date and use within 8 to 12 months for best quality.
