Q.Keeping Raspberries Fresh

Anonymous added on August 17, 2011 | Answered

I have loads of raspberries. I just picked a quart and I want to save them like they are now, till tomorrow. What can I do to keep them from getting mushy and tart? I do a lot of freezing but when I make something, the raspberries are always tarter than when I pick them.

Raspberries do not stay fresh longer than a few days. Raspberries quickly mold when left at room temperature, and only last a couple of days in the refrigerator. You can easily freeze berries that you don't use right away. Otherwise, you'll have to use them within the two-day period.
