Hello my name is Paege Chafin and I'm the owner and executive chef of Roman Gardens Restaurant in St. Petersburg, Florida. Today we're going to tell you the best way to keep your blueberries fresh. Blueberries come in a cardboard container with a wrapper as a rule and you want to make sure you take that wrapper off as soon as you can once you get them home. The cardboard container will start to get soggy so you would want to pull them out and put them in a ziploc bag. This is one of the few fruits that you can actually put in the refrigerator and put in a bag that it doesn't come from the store that way. The best way is to put them in a bag as small as possible for the amount of blueberries that you have in there and make sure that your humidity controller on your refrigerator is set for fruits and not vegetables. The blueberry has to have quite a bit more water once it is in the refrigerator then say a strawberry or a blackberry or things of that nature. The blueberry only has a skin. It doesn't have any of the bulbous things on the outside like the two fruits we just talked about so you can put it in a ziploc bag and you can just eat it straight out of the ziploc bag. Make sure you please dry them off after you wash them to put them in the refrigerator and enjoy your blueberries and that is how you store fresh blueberries and enjoy them along with all your other fruits. This is Paege Chafin from Roman Gardens Restaurant in St. Petersburg, Florida and have a great day.
