Ingredients
  

  • 1 pint blueberries (Or up to as many as you have!)

Instructions
 

  • Sort your berries and remove any that are blemished.
  • Wash the berries gently.
  • Spread on a clean kitchen towel and pat gently to dry. You can also let them sit at room temperature to dry further for 30-60 minutes.
  • Add to a zip top freezer bag, filling about half full. Lay flat, spread the berries out into one even layer, and press out as much air as possible.
  • Freeze flat so the berries don't stick together. Once fully frozen, you can reposition the bag upright if you want.

Notes

  • Freeze for 6-12 months.
  • Do as few or as many berries as you like. Use a pint-size freezer bag for one pint and a gallon size for two pints.
  • Fill bags halfway to avoid overfilling and to allow them to freeze in a flat layer.
  • Aim to have the berries totally dry to reduce the chances of them freezing together.
  • Freeze in one flat even layer to avoid them freezing together.
  • Use in smoothies, muffins, oatmeal, jam, crisp or any other favorite blueberry recipe.
