I start looking forward to berry season as soon as it starts to look like spring is on it's way. I admit that I am somewhat of a giant fan of berries of all kinds, but especially blue berries.I like them so much that at this time of year, I have a small bowl of them for breakfast every morning.I buy so many blueberries that I often get carried away when they are on sale this time of year and end up with lots of extra. I don't want them to go bad, so I freeze them.
How to Freeze Blueberries
Freezing blueberries is extremely easy and only requires that you lay them out on a piece of parchment paper on a jelly roll pan in the freezer and then place them in containers for later use. Make sure you wash them and dry them well before freezing. Frozen blue berries work in nearly every recipe that requires baking them and they are also a great summer snack by themselves!
