Dear Barbara: Since strawberry season is so short, I want to use as many as possible. I bought a lug of them at our favorite berry stand. What is the best way to store them, and how long can I keep them before they start to spoil? — Kendra from Lodi

Dear Kendra: Local berries are wonderful right now. They also get “old” very quickly. You should always use them the day you purchase them, and hull and wash them right before using. If this is not possible, then I would suggest putting them on a cookie sheet (with short sides) in a single layer, but you really need to use them the next day. Any longer than that and they can get moldy and should be tossed out.
