It’s blueberry season in Michigan and we picked over 19 pounds a couple weeks back. Here’s how we preserve our berries.
Flash Freezing Blueberries
Wash the blueberries and allow to dry.
I spread the berries onto designated towels – they get a little stained, but it’s worth it.
After the blueberries have dried, place a single layer in a freezer-safe pan.
Allow the blueberries to freeze overnight.
When the berries are frozen, remove from the pan and place in freezer containers or freezer bags. I’ve found that placing the freezer bag in a container to keep it upright makes it easier to fill.
Seal, label and put in your freezer to enjoy for the rest of the year.
