Right this minute is the ideal time to support local farm stands by purchasing the fruits & vegetables that are arriving daily. Plan to pick up a pint or two of fresh blueberries for use in seasonal garden salads & to top over cereal now, however add a few additional pints to your order to freeze. Over the next week or so, I’ll show you how to use the frozen blueberries in a variety of cooking & baking applications that are not only familiar but better for you & your family, too. 

The Profile

Fresh blueberries are certainly one of the highlights of late spring & early summer. They may be used to make desserts ranging from pies & crisps to delicious breakfast & dessert fare that includes muffins, buckles & tea bread. Fresh blueberries are one of those fruits that may easily be frozen however it’s good know the right applications in which they should be used that harness their optimum flavor & texture. 

Freezing Instructions

Rinse one pint of fresh blueberries under cool water in a colander. Dry them completely. If they are not fully dry, they will stick together during the freezing process. Once the berries have been dried, place them in a quart-size freezer bag & push all of the air out during the sealing process. Place in the freezer up to 5 months. Repeat the procedure with each additional pint of berries, if applicable. 

After the blueberries have been frozen, the texture will change once thawed & are best when they are cooked or baked. In most cases, you’ll be able to portion the amount needed for recipes directly from the frozen state & used without the need to thaw them in advance. 

Cooking Applications

Frozen, fresh blueberries may be cooked into wonderful sauces & fillings. They do tend to bubble & climb high up pot sides. Always use the size indicated in the recipe to avoid overflow & never walk away from berries that are over the heat on the stovetop.   

Baking Applications

In general, fresh or frozen, fresh blueberries may be used interchangeably in recipes. I’ll advise through each tutorial & indicate if that is indeed the case for added flexibility.
