The farmer's market had a great deal on blueberries recently, so we bought a flat of them. There were too many to use right away so I decided to freeze some for later.
- gallon ziplock bag
- Sort through the blueberries, removing any yuck ones and picking off the stems.
NOTE: It is recommended that you do not rinse the blueberries prior to freezing. Instead rinse them prior to use.
- Line a cookie sheet or shallow pan with wax paper. Then spread the blueberries out in a single layer. Place them in the freezer and allow them to freeze completely.
- Pour the frozen blueberries into a gallon ziplock freezer bag. Label the bag with the date and contents, then return them to the freezer.
- When you are ready to use them, place them in a colander and rinse them thoroughly.
- Lay out some paper towels and pour the blueberries onto them. Gently roll them around or blot them with additional paper towels to dry.

Wash them gently and put onto paper toweling to blot some of the water and then spread on a cookie sheet in a single layer and freeze then put into freezer containers or plastic bags. I usually are good until the next year (if they last that long).
