But what do we do when we still have blueberries? We freeze them!

Blueberries are so easy to freeze, much like freezing strawberries. You just fill a rimmed cookie sheet with blueberries and carefully place them in the freezer.freezing blueberries Allow the blueberries to freeze solid. When they are completely frozen place the blueberries in a freezer bag or container and place back in the freezer.Place the frozen berries into a freezer container. That’s it. You will be able to enjoy them this winter.Frozen blueberries. It’s always nice to enjoy a yummy Blueberry Cobbler in the middle of winter!

Enjoy!

April,
I too love blueberries and I’m always sad when the season comes to an end!

Another thing you can do any time you bag frozen berries or anything else, is to ziplock the top almost all the way, stick a straw in (closing the ziplock all the way around the straw), then suck all the air out that you can. Then close the Baggie as you pull the straw out. Getting as much air out as you can will prolong the freezer life and lessen freezer burn.

I really enjoy your site. Thanks.
