"You'll never have to deal with moldy strawberries ever again!"

Buying strawberries can sometimes feel like a sad, never-ending cycle. You buy your delicious fresh fruit, thinking you’ll eat it immediately. But then it becomes lost and forgotten, stuck in the back of the fridge for a week. By the time you remember they’re there, they’ve become a hard, sour, and sometimes moldy shell of what they once were.

Thankfully, a new hack that’s gone viral on TikTok may be able to stop this process once and for all. Stephanie Gigliotti, the content creator behind the account @stephgigliotti28, recently posted a video on how she’s able to keep her strawberries fresh for weeks at a time.

“I found this tip a couple months ago, so I’ve been testing it out. And it works so well,” says Gigliotti. What is this amazing tip for keeping fruit fresh? Just keep it in a jar in your fridge. “If you put your fruit, like strawberries, in a glass jar in the refrigerator, they stay fresh for 2 to 3 weeks!”

This method of storing food is actually pretty popular amongst the zero-waste community. Hundreds of people have posted photos of their fruits and vegetables neatly stored in jars in their refrigerators under the hashtag #thejarmethod—a term that was popularized by Erin and Roe, the creators behind the popular instagram account @brownkids. Not only is storing your fruit in a jar keeping it fresh, but it’s also aesthetically pleasing.

Hopefully, we’ll no longer be unpleasantly surprised with spoiled strawberries whenever we’re craving a sweet and healthy snack. With this super easy and quick food storage hack, you can have less food waste and more fresh fruit for longer.
