Rinse berries right before you use them. Water increases the likelihood they’ll start to mold. Don’t soak: Place them in a colander and rinse water over them instead of fully submerging them. Keep them chilled in the fridge until using them.
Farmers Wife Tip: Refrigerate berries for an hour or so when you bring them home. They’re easier to rinse when they’ve had a chance to firm up just a bit. After washing berries, let them rest in a colander in the refrigerator and another vessel that has some air circulation. This will help them dry out more considerably than if just placed in a bowl. Less chance of them going moldy sooner.
Properly stored, raspberries will usually keep for about 2 to 3 days in the fridge before washing.
Freezing: After washing, neatly arrange berries on a baking sheet. Pop them into the freezer for a few hours, then transfer the frozen raspberries into freezer bags. Can be frozen up to 12 months.
