Freezing Blueberries for Year-Round Blue

Cartons of blueberries

Freezing blueberries is as simple as the berries themselves using the Tray Pack method. Remove any stems or leaves and place them on a baking tray without washing. Pop them into the freezer. Once frozen, transfer them to freezer containers or resealable plastic bags for freezing.  Label and freeze. Frozen blueberries will keep indefinitely in the freezer but are at best quality when used within 10 months.
