Kitchen Hint of the Day!

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.

For most of the country, June is prime time for strawberries. You might also see them in the fall at some farmers’ markets, thanks to ever-bearing varieties that can produce until nearly the first frost. If you do, consider yourself lucky.

Keep those Strawberries…..

How do you make strawberries last longer in the refrigerator -All you need is a bit of vinegar, water, and a colander or salad spinner. To start off, pour about ½ cup of white vinegar and 2 ½ cups of water into a large bowl, and soak your berries in the mixture for a few minutes. The vinegar will get rid of mold spores and bacteria, which make your strawberries spoil quicker.
