Last month I discovered the easy way to freeze strawberries, so I could preserve local, seasonal berries from the Holland Farmers’ Market for winter enjoyment. Now it’s blueberry season in Michigan, so get them while they’re fresh!
My friend Lois is the one who tipped me off to this idea originally. It’s so basic and simple, although it does help to have some freezer space, or a friend with freezer space.
Just buy a few quarts–or as many as you can manage to freeze–at your local market or blueberry farm. Wash them and let them dry on a towel. Then spread them out on wax paper on baking sheet or other large pan.
Stick them in the freezer over night, then dump the whole batch into a ziplock bag for storing.
