Once you’ve picked hoards of the beautiful blue, sweet balls of wonder, what do you do with them? Besides cooking and eating, you can also freeze blueberries so that they can be enjoyed all year.
Frozen berries can be used the same as fresh berries once thawed. And it’s a super treat to have fantastic quality blueberries in the dead of winter.
How to Freeze Blueberries:
1) Wash the blueberries and let them drain well. Get them as dry as you can.
2) Spread the blueberries in a single layer in a freezer safe container. Leave them their until they are completely frozen.
3) Transfer blueberries to a freezer bag, such as a Zip-loc or a FoodSaver. Remove air and place back in the freezer until you are ready to use them.
