Instructions
  1. Sort through your freshly picked blueberries. Remove any damaged fruit, stems, or debris.
  2. Wash gently using a colander and cool water.
  3. Allow berries to dry on a paper towel for 10 minutes. It is important to remove as much water as you can. Avoid patting dry with a towel as you will risk damage to the fruit.
  4. Lay the berries in a single layer onto a foil-lined baking sheet. Place into the freezer uncovered for 20-30 minutes.
  5. Once frozen, place berries into a dated and labeled 10-quart sized freezer bag. Remove all of the air with a straw and seal. Freeze for up to one year.
Recipe Notes

In order to keep as many nutrients with the berries as possible, the trick is to freeze them as close to picking as you can. If you plan to pick your own berries remember to factor in the washing, drying, freezing time to your day. This will ensure you get it all done at one time giving you the very best berries with the most vitamins and nutrients you can.

This recipe can be used for any amount of berries. Keep portions to 2 cups per 1-quart bag to ensure freshness. Remember to remove the air each time you reclose the bag to keep berries from forming ice.
