Don't wash the berries until you are ready to use them.

Leave the green caps on the berries until they are ready to be used. This keeps them juicier!

Put a couple of days supply into the refrigerator in a glass jar with a lid.

You can easily freeze berries that you cannot use right away. Just wash, cut the green caps off and pop them into a ziplock bag. Remove as much air as possible. They will keep for several months

If nature were not beautiful it would not be worth knowing and if nature were not worth knowing, then life would not be worth living.
