Buying and storing berries
  • Make sure the berries are fresh when you buy them: the sepals should be fresh and green. The fruit must not be damaged.
  • Once you get the berries home, keep them cool at about 1°C.
  • Eat the fruit quickly, because it tastes better fresh.
  • Strawberries and raspberries lose their aroma during storage.
  • Strawberries and raspberries can be frozen to preserve them for longer. They can be stored in the deep-freeze for up to a year.
  • The right way to freeze the berries: first place the fruits next to each other on a plate or baking tray and leave in the deep-freeze for a couple of hours. Only then should you put them in a freezer bag. 

Enjoying strawberries and raspberries
  • Do not wash and prepare until immediately before consumption!
  • Wash the fruits in a bowl of water. Avoid powerful jets of water as they may harm the fruits.
  • Do not remove leaves and stalks until after washing, otherwise valuable nutrients will be lost in the water.
