Blueberries are coming into season here in Texas. I buy them when they are at a low price, rinse, drain them and put in freezer bags. They are great to take out of the freezer for recipes, to put on cold cereal, or use in smoothies. Blueberries are so good for you, too.
In Northeast Florida, we buy blueberries every year in July when the supermarkets have them on sale at the lowest prices of the year. They come in pint size plastic containers which we put directly into the freezer. In a few days when they are completely frozen, we empty them into freezer bags and back into the freezer. We wash them as we take them out to eat. We find that 60 pints of blueberries will usually last until the next year.
Blueberries are one of the healthiest foods on this earth. Loaded with antioxidants and boy are they delicious on cereals and in smoothies. I planted several blueberry bushes in the landscape three years ago and they are starting to bear some fruit. Enjoy them to their fullest! (07/01/2005)
