Storage &
Serving Success

Choosing the best fresh blueberries at the store is simple. Pick outstanding berries every time with these tips 

Choose blueberries that are:

  • firm and dry
  • plump and smooth skinned
  • even, dark blue in color with a silvery powder (called bloom)

Blueberries should be kept refrigerated and stored in their original package. Blueberries stored in a cool and dry environment are best enjoyed within 7-10 days after purchase. 

Rinse blueberries in cool tap water just before serving. After rinsing, gently blot dry and enjoy!

  1. After rinsing, ensure blueberries are completely dry.
  2. Arrange blueberries on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper.
  3. Place uncovered in your freezer for 24 hours.
  4. Transfer blueberries to a freezer bag or container.

*Following these steps will prevent the berries from clumping together.  

TIP: Frozen blueberries are perfect for oatmeal and sauces and can be stored for 7-10 months!
