Why store raspberries?
The key to storing any kind of berry is to keep it as dry as possible. If the berry is too wet, it will start to mold and spoil very quickly. Strawberries, raspberries and blackberries are particularly susceptible to mold because they are so delicate.
Place the berries in a single layer on a paper towel-lined plate or baking sheet. Let them sit at room temperature for about an hour to allow any moisture on the surface of the berries to evaporate.
Once the berries are dry, place them in a clean, dry container lined with paper towels or a clean dishcloth. Be sure to use a container that has plenty of ventilation, such as a colander or berry basket.
If you need to store the berries for more than a day or two, place them in the fridge. Berries will keep fresh in the fridge for about three days.
