Berries are definitely that item at the grocery store that are expensive and often times end up in the garbage can! When you want to eat some delicious strawberries you open the container and they are all mushy and soft? Don't get rid of them! You can bring them back to life with a very easy and cheap trick!
Brittany King, a Facebook user, shared her amazing tip on Facebook. It can also be used to save wilted greens! Take your old mushy strawberries and and put them in a large bowl full of ice water! After about 20 minutes they will be juicy and beautiful just like at the grocery store when you first picked them!
You should know that this trick is not miraculous, it won't bring back moldy strawberries and greens. It can be used when the fruit is going to get bad but is not moldy yet.
Another user shared their tip: put a towel in the bottom of the strawberry container to absorb the excess moisture. It's worth a try!
There you go, you will not have to throw out perfectly good strawberries again!
Or are you the type that eats them right when you get home? What is your favourite way to store them?
