When shopping, choose firm, dry berries free of soft spots and mold. Store in a covered container in the refrigerator, but remember to eat them quickly; they’re best within a few days but can sometimes be stored for up to a week. Don’t wash them until you are ready to eat. Washing before storing makes them more susceptible to spoiling.
