Do you ever get fresh strawberries from the grocery store and within a day or two they are going bad? Today’s tip will keep your strawberries lasting for days!
Lay a paper towel (I use Bounty) in the bottom of a plastic container. Slice up strawberries right when you get them home from the grocery store. Lay them on the paper towel. Add another layer of paper towel if you have a lot of strawberries!
I (Tracy) did this just this week on a Sunday afternoon. We had a swim meet on Tuesday night and the strawberries were perfectly fresh, sliced, and ready to eat! Delicious!
I learned this from my client, Laura! Thanks, Laura (smiles!).

A 3.5-ounce serving of fresh strawberries, or about five large berries, provides 32 calories and almost 59 milligrams of vitamin C, or 98 percent of the daily value. As such, ounce for ounce, strawberries are slightly higher in vitamin C — and lower in calories — than oranges…
…Comparatively, guava, kiwifruit, papaya and sweet bell peppers of all colors are higher in vitamin C than both oranges and strawberries. Brussels sprouts are so concentrated in vitamin C that even cooked sprouts are richer in vitamin C than fresh oranges and strawberries.
