A piece of summer advice from Aromatherapy for berry-lovers looking to keep their fruit perfect for longer: “Just put the unwashed berries in a glass jar, screw the lid on, put in fridge.”

Many people have tried this trick with raspberries, including Ruth Lafler, with excellent results. And choctastic has tried it with other kinds of berries, and finds that it works great. “The strawberries do take on a slightly firmer texture after being in glass, or it could be my imagination,” says choctastic. “However, that’s better than having them rot.”
