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!
- After rinsing, ensure blueberries are completely dry.
- Arrange blueberries on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper.
- Place uncovered in your freezer for 24 hours.
- 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!
