How to Store Fresh Berries to Preserve Freshness

Keep summer sweet and extend the life of your fresh berries all summer long with these easy-to-do storage tips.

To extend the life of fragile fresh berries, first remove them from their package and sort through, discarding ones past their prime. Rinse gently.

Place paper towels in the bottom of a plastic container. Space berries apart in a single layer on the paper towels, stem side down. Cover and place in the refrigerator. Berries will stay fresh longer.
