Strawberries- storage tips and recipes

Strawberries-- one of the few fruits we grow!

Strawberries will taste their best at room temperature, but if you must store them, start by getting rid of any damaged berries that will likely spoil the bunch, and place the rest in the refrigerator where you should use them within a day or two.   Do not wash your berries until you&#39;re just about to eat them.   Wash with their caps and stems still attached to keep the water from affecting their texture and flavor, n a bad way. Pinch off the caps with your fingertips, or use a paring knife - to minimize loss of tasty goodness.
