■ 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.
