Bad Strawberries

Picked strawberries around 11:45am today and left them in a bag in the car. I got home several hours later and noticed that they were soft, mushy and it looked swollen and spoiled. Since i picked it earlier from the tree itself, is it safe to eat? I was planning to store them in the freezer and use it to make smoothies since they kinda gross to eat.

Is maple syrup mold harmful?

I’ve heard that the mold that sometimes grows on the surface of maple syrup isn’t harmful, and that one can simply pour the syrup through a coffee filter to remove it. Other people say that you should throw out the syrup and buy a fresh bottle. Which is right, and if filtering works are there any other steps one should take to slow the reappearance of mold? Would heating the syrup to a certain temperature help? Should we store our syrup in the refrigerator?

Refrigerate Cream Cheese Cookies?

I made cream cream cheese cookies, it has a graham cracker crust like cookie with a dimple in it and then filled with a filling containing cream chees, egg yoke, vanilla, and sugar and then baked. The only information I could that seemed relevant was in regards to a recipe where the cream cheese was in the cookie itself, not in a almost gelatin like filling. I'm not sure if these need to be refrigerated. I would like to ship some to a relative but I'm not if that's a good idea.
