Strawberries are a delicate fruit and do best when handled gently.
Cool berries to refrigerator temperature (about 4 degrees C) as soon as possible.
If possible, store covered in the refrigerator in the original container.
Wash just before use, whether eating or processing.
Hull (remove the green part) after washing.
Laying the berries on a towel is a good way to dry them before serving or freezing.
Most varieties are best used within three days of picking.
