Freezing Berries

Do you love to preserves your berries, but hate when they are all mushy once too.  Here is the best way to preserve berries if you want to freeze them.
  1. Wash them and put on paper towels to dry.  You can air dry them or pat them gently with paper towels. 
  2. Spread them on a cookie sheet and put in the freezer for about 1/2 hour or until frozen.
  3. Put frozen berries into zip lock freezer bags or if you have a food saver, the vacuum seal is great.
  4. Use as needed
Your berries will not stick together and won't turn to mush when done this way.  You can harvest them as they ripen and keep adding berries to the same bag if you are using the zip lock bags.  Frozen berries make great jams and jellies.
