First you must know which strawberries are the best, to get the best of them. Well, when buying them, always chose medium sized fruits because they are the sweetest! Intensely red fruits whose petioles are not removed are the best! The biggest fruits usually are not so sweet and juicy, as it seems.
The second advice we can give you is really simple- and we already wrote about it- wash your fruits JUST before you are to eat them. If you wash them and then put them in your fridge, they’ll lose their natural protective layer, and you can do nothing but throw them away.
The third advice is about freezing them. If you want to freeze them, wash them and put them on plateau to dry. When dried, put them in your freezer, and finally when they are frozen- sprinkle all over them freshly made lemon juice. Why lemon, you’re asking yourselves? Well, lemon will keep their red color, so when you unfreeze them, they’ll look as if they’re just picked from the garden. When you sprinkled the juice over the fruits, put them in plastic bags, and put them back in the freezer.
