How to Pick & Store Blueberries

When harvesting Blueberries, select plump, full berries with a blue color. A berry with a hint of red is not fully ripened.  Blueberries don’t actually reach their full flavor until a few days after they turn blue, so a tip to know which ones are the best is to tickle the bunches lightly – only the true ripe ones will fall into your hand. 

 After they are picked, store blueberries unwashed for a few days in the refrigerator in layers of paper towels and covered in plastic wrap up to five days.  


Freezing Blueberries

Blueberries also freeze very well and once defrosted, can be used identically to fresh berries in almost any way.  Freeze Blueberries unwashed in single layers on cookie sheets, then move them to plastic bags or freezer containers,  this keeps the berries from getting crushed.  Because unwashed blueberries freeze individually, they can be easily poured from containers in desired amounts. 


Remember both frozen and fresh berries should be rinsed and drained just before serving. Just before using, wash the berries in cold water.
