Blueberry Care

CARE OF BLUEBERRIES

  • As with most fruits, blueberries bruise easily, so handle them gently.
  • As soon as possible, gently pour berries onto trays or on paper towels on counter tops one (1) layer of berries deep. 
  • Let the berries sit until they are dry.
  • Sort the blueberries, removing any stems, little twigs, etc.
  • To use fresh:  As soon as possible after berries are dry, put in covered bowls and refrigerate.
  • To freeze:  As soon as possible after berries are dry, put on trays one layer deep and freeze.  It only takes a couple of hours.  Dump the frozen blueberries into freezer bags, label, and return to freezer.
