Directions for Freezing Blueberries

Blueberries are one of the easiest fruits I’ve found to freeze. They hold up well in the freezer without losing too much flavor or color. My son eats them like candy right out of the freezer.

Blueberries freeze the very best if they are left unwashed. This keeps the bloom intact, and this light colored, dusty coating is the blueberry’s natural protection, preserving the fruit. Simply rinse frozen berries quickly before use if desired.

  1. Go through berries, picking out any leaves, blossoms, or mushy berries.
  2. Spread berries in a single layer in cookie sheets.
  3. Freeze until solid.
  4. Pour frozen berries into freezer bags or containers. I’ve found Ziploc freezer bags to work the best.
If you really want to wash your berries before you freeze them, you would want to wash them, drain them in a colander, and let them air dry on paper towels before you begin Step 2 above.
