How to Make Berries Last

To prolong the life of your berries, always store them in the refrigerator, and never wash them until they are being eaten or used.

For a deeper clean, dip your strawberries or blueberries in a bowl of 4:1 mixture of water to white vinegar. After washing, dry the berries on a towel thoroughly. This extra step helps prevent mould from growing on the surface of the berries which extends their shelf life.

Tip: Avoid leaving your berries in the vinegar mixture for too long, as it can absorb the vinegar flavour.
