After you’re finished picking the berries, take them to the front of the farm and have the bucket weighed and pay for berries based on a certified price per pound digital scale. Strawberries are most desirable when harvested and enjoyed in the same afternoon, but if you have got to preserve them for a longer time, keep all of them in your refrigerator. Arrange the berries in a small jar after throwing out any berries that were damaged or spoiled. Cover the items and keep at around thirty five degrees Fahrenheit for best effect. Do not remove the caps or clean the strawberries until you are all set to use these because if you do that, the berries lose a little of their moisture whichÂ tends to bruise the berries and cause the berries to lose their freshness quicker.
Whenever you are completely ready to use the strawberries for a dessert or as a side dish with some ice cream or pound cake, position the berries in a strainer and rinse off with cool water. To remove the caps, give the caps a gentle twist or use the point of a vegetable peeler, trying not to remove any of the berry. There you have it, a basic guide to follow and we hope you enjoy some fresh fruit this weekend!
