Tips for straw­berry sea­son

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - FOOD NEWS -

Only wash your straw­ber­ries as you go. Straw­ber­ries ab­sorb mois­ture like sponges, which means they are more likely to get mushy and spoil. They will last longer if kept dry. Don’t throw away the tops! An en­tire straw­berry is ed­i­ble, so keep the top of the straw­berry (leaves and stem in­cluded) for flavour­ing and in­fus­ing things like wa­ter and cock­tails! If you buy straw­ber­ries but end up not be­ing able to use them, slice them and put them in the freezer. Frozen straw­ber­ries are per­fect for adding to smooth­ies or us­ing in bak­ing.
