About Raspberries: According to Kitchn’s, Kelly Foster, these sweet berries are particularly fragile, with thin skin that easily soaks up liquid, making them more prone to mold and spoilage. Foster, suggests the best way to keep them fresh and extend their shelf life even longer is to wash just before eating, and no sooner.
