Quick Tip

When storing fresh strawberries, you actually don’t want to wash them. Strawberries will keep best when dry and chilled. When wet, the strawberries have more of a chance of growing mold or turning soggy. So, after you buy a pack of fresh berries in the grocery store, just put the container in the fridge until you are ready to use them.

6. Crockpot Strawberry Jam

If you have a lot of extra fresh strawberries, you absolutely must make strawberry jam. It’s one of the best ways to use strawberries and this recipe is very easy to make. The jam cooks in the crockpot so you barely have to do anything!

I like to put this strawberry jam on biscuits and serve it for breakfast. It is also perfect for PB&J sandwiches. You can even put a little bit on top of vanilla ice cream. Homemade strawberry jam has so many uses!
