How to Freeze Berries

Spread clean, dry, whole berries on a cookie sheet and set in the freezer.

An hour later transfer the frozen berries into a lidded freezer container.

This ensures the berries freeze individually instead of clumping together into one big mass. Now it is easy to scoop a few frozen berries out of the container for using in smoothies, desserts, etc. as you need them. You can even use them to make jam during the winter when you aren’t so busy in the garden.

While the image above shows an assortment of berries you can freeze using this method, it also shows some twigs, leaves and stems in the mix. Obviously, these should be removed prior to freezing your berries!
