Storing Berries

There is a chemical reaction when berries (and tomatoes, which are a fruit,  for that matter) hit cold temperatures like those in your refrigerator.  They lose much of  their rich delicious flavor.  Berries mold very quickly at room temperature so what to do?!?  Firstly, only wash berries right before you eat them.  Store them in the fridge unwashed.  Put them on your counter for at least an hour before you wash and eat them, and some of the flavor will return.  – Lula
