Storing Blackberries

Summer means sweet, tangy blackberries are available in abundance. If you are lucky there are some growing right down the road. Like raspberries, blackberries can be delicate, and need to be stored carefully to prevent crushing. This is a guide for the best ways to store blackberries.

The best way to store blackberries for use at a later date is to rinse them and then put them on a cookie sheet in your freezer until they are frozen solid. Then transfer them to a Tupperware type container and keep in the freezer until you want to use them. You can easily take out a little or a lot depending on your recipe.

I have found that if I store blackberries or raspberries in a airtight container (I use Glasslock), they last much longer than the ones stored in the paper pint container from the farmer's market. I tried storing some in each and the ones refrigerated in the Glasslock lasted almost a week where the ones in the paper container lasted only 2 days.
