Choose bright red berries with no pale or soft spots. The more fragrant they are, the tastier they’ll be. Wash strawberries just before eating to keep them fresh.
Pick peppers that look plump and feel firm, with shiny skin and no soft spots. Store them in the crisper.
Choose peaches with pink or orange skin, without green spots. Ripe ones have a strong aroma and aren't too hard or too soft (and will give a little when pressed).
Making these tasty in-season favourites is way easier than canning. Pick it, pack it and you’re done!
