  • yes. put them on a baking sheet and stick them in the freezer overnight. make sure they're dry before you freeze them. then the next day put them into a container or freezer bag!

  • Yeah, what the pp said. We went blueberry picking one year and were having so much fun we didn't realize how much we picked. We got to the scales and we had picked 18 lbs of blueberries! We washed them, dried them, laid them on a cookie sheet and froze them. We put them in baggies and had blueberries all year. We plan on doing it again this year.

  • yes, wash and spread out on a cookie sheet and freeze until firm , then you can put in a freezer bag and be able to pull out what you need, when you need it, without it being all in clumps.

  • The best way to freeze blueberries is in a single layer on a baking sheet. Dry them as well as you can first without bruising them by laying them on a layer of paper towels and covering them with more paper towels. Place them without crowding them, on the baking sheet, pop it in the freezer, and wait. Once frozen, pack the berries into appropriate storage containers and return them to the freezer.

  • Yes, lay them in a single layer, let dress and then place in ziploc baggies to freeze.
