When Good Fruit Goes Bad

This is the down side to eating delicious, ripe, organic fruit - it just doesn't keep that well. Pal Jeanne and I picked up these beautiful strawberries at the Sunday Marin farmer's market (yes, she is a convert!) and by Monday morning, because I didn't refrigerate them, most of them collapsed overnight into mush. Mushy mush. Oozing mushy mush. Mush.

Lucky that Jeanne thought to put them on a paper towel after washing, or my cool vintage counters would have been running in strawberry goo.

I did manage to salvage a few... but the moral of the story is, enjoy 'em soonest unless you like fuzzy mush.

I had this happen the first time I bought some Strawberries from the local FM too! Thankfully we have cheap tile condo counters!

Another moral of the story is to only wash your strawbs when you're ready to eat, that slightly lengthens their life
