Tips for Buying Fresh Blueberries
- Berries should be a dark blue color, with a slight powdery look to them.
- Look for firm berries – berries don’t ripen once they’ve been picked. So keep an eye out for shriveled or soft looking berries
- Don’t wash berries until ready to use.
- Berries will often last in the refrigerator up to over one week, if stored dry.
I remember on my trip with California Giant we learned about the different blueberry varieties, with each variety having its own unique flavor profile. So if you’ve ever wondered why one of your blueberries taste a little different than the ones you purchased previously, that’s why!
But no matter what variety of blueberries you pick up, they’ll taste amazing in these easy blueberry recipes!
How to Freeze Blueberries
Blueberry season always brings back fond memories of picking fresh berries with family. It’s the perfect time to stock your freezer to bake with all year long.
- Rinse – Before freezing, rinse the blueberries in cold water and allow to dry on the country in a single layer on reusable paper towels.
- Freeze – Once your berries are washed and dry, you can flash freeze them on large rimmed baking sheet. I prefer to the put them straight into a freezer bag or freezer safe reusable plastic bags. It’s important to press all the air out to prevent freezer burn.
- Store – To save freezer space, lay bags of frozen blueberries flat on their side so they can be easily stacked. Be sure to label and date your containers so you know when you use your fruit by. It’s best to use within 6-9 months of freezing.
You can thaw frozen blueberries or use them straight from the freezer, depending on the recipe. If you thaw for a recipe, it’s best to drain in a colander so there’s no additional water in the recipe.
