Servings 2 cups


  • 2 cups fresh blueberries


  • Clean blueberries under cool, running water in a colander.
  • Sort blueberries, remove any stems, and discard any bad berries.
  • Lay blueberries on paper towels or a clean dish towel to dry, or use a berry spinner to dry berries.
  • When blueberries are mostly dry, transfer them to the baking sheet and spread them out in a single layer.
  • Lay baking sheet flat in freezer and freeze blueberries (no need to cover) for 4-5 hours or overnight.
  • When blueberries are frozen, transfer to Ziploc freezer bags. Label bags with contents and date, and store in freezer until ready to use.
