Mum's 'life-changing' storage hack makes fresh strawberries last for weeks

The one thing about fruit is that you can count on it going off quickly. No matter how fresh your selection, it's easy to end up binning your produce sooner than you'd like. Thankfully, it's time so say goodbye to mushy strawberries thanks to a handy TikTok recommendation.

A woman has shared how her life was changed after learning a storage tip that keeps the fruit fresh for longer - and now her berries last for up to two weeks.

The money-saving trick is so simple you'll kick yourself for not thinking of it sooner if you're not already a fan. Luckily, you need not waste any more money.

Simply store your strawberries in a jar before popping them in the fridge, as @tinytonics recommends.

Shocked she'd not heard of the hack before, the savvy shopper asked: "Who was going to tell me that if you store strawberries in jars, you don't have to sacrifice half of them to the strawberry gods? They last. They don't go bad. They stay good. You don't have to throw half of them away. I wasted so many strawberries because nobody told me."

Thanking a fellow social media user for enlightening her, she added: "You've changed my life. They last like two weeks and they're all good."

Well, it turns out she wasn't the only one who had not heard of the tip before, according to the comments left on her video, which racked up over three million views.

"Nobody told me," replied one stunned viewer, while another commented: "Currently eating week old strawberries straight from my glass jar, so so fresh still. I learnt also from this app."

Elsewhere, other responders were quick to share their own storage tips. "Careful though. it does help them last longer, but then they start to ferment," warned one advisor.

Another said: "Just rinse them in vinegar and water solution and they last more than 2 weeks." Echoing the advice, a second person added: "Bowl of water, glug of vinegar. Soak for 10 min, rinse the berries, air dry on a dish towel. THEN jar them!"

Meanwhile, someone else recommended: "Just a heads up don't do this to broccoli. I nearly lost an eye when that lid popped off."
