Strawberries

So this year strawberries have just about overrun my garden. Yesterday I easily pulled off a pound. Ideas to make them last a little longer?? They seem to go bad faster than the ones I bought from the store.

try doing a  vinegar wash on them. I fill my sink with cool water and add maybe 1/4 c vinegar and let my produce soak for about 15 mins. It helps alot

I'm doing this already. Pay dry and place in container lined with paper towel. Still seems as if they "age"...

Can you freeze some of them ? Or maybe turn some of them into jam?

I wish I had planted strawberries this year. My girls like a cranberry jam I do with strawberries.

I wish ours would over run our garden. Smooties, jam, chocolate covered strawberries, so many yummies. Even the store bought age here before I get them home :(
