I love cooking in the summertime when fresh berries and cherries are at their peak. To keep the fruit fresh between trips to the market, I put an ice pack in the bottom of a large stainless-steel bowl and set a colander of fruit on top. The air around the fruit stays cool and keeps the fruit fresh longer than when it is kept in the humid refrigerator. Of course, I check the ice pack often and replace it when necessary.
