Kitchen Hint of the Day!

September 17, 2020 at 6:00 AM | Posted in Kitchen Hints | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Storing Strawberries………………………

To keep strawberries cold and dry so they won’t mold. For the short term: Arrange the berries (without washing or removing the stems) on a paper towel-lined tray and cover with plastic wrap; then refrigerate. Before eating or using them, wash the berries under cool water and then remove stems. If you don’t plan to eat your strawberries the day you bring them home, the best place for them is in the crisper drawer of the refrigerator. It helps to maintain humidity and keep the berries from losing moisture and becoming dry.

Kitchen Hint of the Day!

August 13, 2020 at 6:00 AM | Posted in Kitchen Hints | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Buying Strawberries………………….

Try buying strawberries from a local store rather than a supermarket as they may have fresher and juicier lot. A fresh strawberry should be firm to touch, bright red in color and should be free of molds and bruises. Do not pick up green berries in a bid to ripen them at home, considering they barely have any flavor.
