How to Freeze Blueberries

A couple of weeks ago I was thrilled to find 5 pound boxes of blueberries at our local grocer for $8 a box! That is the best price I have ever seen in these parts. I bought two boxes, then went back for a third. I have to admit that while I had the knowledge on how to freeze the berries, it was my wonderful hubby who did the deed. Here are 6 steps to freezing blueberries.... nothing could be more simple.

1) Buy or pick a plethora of blueberries (or any other berry for that matter).

2) Sort through them and discard smashed or green berries, as well as stems or leaves.

3) Wash berries.

4) Pour a single layer of berries onto a baking sheet and let them dry throughly.

5) Freeze berries on baking sheet.

6) Store in freezer safe containers.

Here's to blueberry pancakes all winter long! And frozen blueberries, straight out of the freezer, are one of my daughter's favorite snacks. Like little blueberries slushies. Just let thaw for a minute, then eat. Yum!
