- Mom shares genius hack for glass jars that keeps strawberries fresh longer
- The storage method caught the attention of Facebook users because of its simplicity
- Strawberry prices have fallen across Australia with punnets as low as $1.00
One savvy mom shared her simple tip for keeping strawberries fresh for up to three weeks, making them the perfect picnic treat.
As strawberry prices drop to just $1.00 a tray, shoppers have picked up the popular fruit across the country.
Despite the affordable price, strawberries can be tricky to store and can often go bad after a few days in the refrigerator if stored in their containers.
But one mom has found a simple and easy solution to keep the strawberries fresh and preserve them longer.

“It took me 36 years to figure out that if you put strawberries in glass jars, they last forever!” She posted on Facebook.
“These, no word of a lie, are over 3 weeks old. From the supermarket. I’m lucky if I get them to last 5 days before they start spinning if I buy them there. I don’t know who else knows this trick, but if not, you’re welcome!’
Facebook users praised the woman for her simple and clever storage trick.
“It’s worked so far, I’m on day six,” one wrote.
‘I do that with all berries/grapes. Takes so much longer,” commented another.
“Thanks for sharing, I’ve been getting cheap strawberries lately so I’m going to try this trick,” added a third.
Despite the affordable price, strawberries can be tricky to store and can spoil after a few days in the refrigerator if stored in their containers.
The hack comes as strawberry prices in Australia are falling due to Covid-19 lockdowns, causing shoppers to buy less fruit.
Earlier this month, The Queensland Strawberry Growers Association posted a social media appeal urging customers to take advantage of the deal.
‘Queensland Strawberry farmers want you to buy strawberries at the craziest low prices ever!’ It said.
‘Every container you buy helps strawberry growers to keep their heads above water and to tackle oversupply and food waste. With prices per tray starting at $1.00, head to your local fruit shop or grocery store today to save our strawberries.”
