How do you keep strawberries fresh longer?

– Store them in the fridge, in a container with holes for ventilation
– Don’t wash the strawberries until you’re ready to eat them
– Remove any strawberries that are starting to go bad so that they don’t infect the others
following these tips should help your strawberries stay fresh for about 2-3 days. After that, they’ll start to go bad and should be eaten or frozen.
Is it better to freeze strawberries whole or sliced?
It doesn’t really matter whether you freeze strawberries whole or sliced. Just make sure they are clean and dry before freezing them and then store them in a freezer-safe container. When you’re ready to use them, thaw the strawberries in the fridge overnight.

Can you eat frozen strawberries raw?
