Well, hope everyone is enjoying their summer; it’s hard to believe that you can already feel the cool fall temperatures in the air. But it is the perfect temperature for picking berries, especially raspberries and blueberries. There are so many yummy desert recipes you can make or maybe add them to your favorite cereal or yogurt. Or maybe you just want to freeze them to enjoy over the winter months.

Here are some “Tips to Freeze Summer Berries”:

• Make sure that the fruit is fresh and at the peak of its ripeness

• Make sure you’ve thoroughly cleaned each piece of fruit

• Spread dry fruit in a single layer on a cookie sheet and place directly in the freezer for an hour

• After the initial freezing, place berries in an airtight container or re-sealable freezer bag, label
your container with the date and contents

• Frozen berries should last 6-8 months, which should cover your berry needs until next summer!

Happy berry picking!
