How to Freeze Blueberries


My homegrown Blueberries are booming again this year. I am picking almost a gallon of berries every 2 days! It takes me almost a half hour daily to pick Blueberries from just two bushes that are over 25 years old. Every year I say this must be the last year but they are like the Energizer Bunny and keep growing and growing.

Click on the link below that I posted last year to see how I freeze Blueberries. They keep frozen for a year and still taste great.

    • You can still freeze small quantities of blueberries. They make great smoothies and some people like to eat them frozen….like my granddaughter! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  1. Wow! That’s a lot of blueberries! I’m glad that by freezing them, you can enjoy them all year long ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. How precious ! plenty of delicious recipes to come ? ๐Ÿ™‚
    ( I am picking some blackberries in a friends’garden – they are delicious with plenty of sugar thanks to the sun ) ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. We have a little orchard of blueberry bushes that give so much every year. Weโ€™ve taken to inviting people over to pick their own! They enjoy it as much as we do!

    • Mine get soft in the freezer too but they hold their shape. I don’t freeze them to eat them like when they are freshly picked. I use them for things like smoothies, pies, cakes, breads etc. However, my granddaughter loves to eat them frozen!

  4. So far I have about 6 quarts in the freezer and they are still coming on strong. One of my favorite ways to use them is to add them to banana bread. Have you ever tried that?

  5. I would love to have blueberry bushes that big. I tried growing one once but it did not do well. I’m going to try the blueberry lemon bread

    • I made peach dumplings (tomorrows post) and I wanted to make a blueberry dessert next but then my raspberries were ready to pick so I made a syrup with them. Too many sweets at once…lol I love using my fruit to bake in the winter! I make blueberry muffins and freeze them. That way I take out one at a time and don’t eat them as fast.

      • The mulberries in the Park are ripening fast – some women walkers eat them right off the trees and bushes – I see squirrels and groundhogs munching on those berries up in the tree. We used to do that too with the muffin, otherwise you are too tempted to have another (and another, etc.). ๐Ÿ™‚

      • It is Diane – I just noted yesterday that they are not ripe yet – took some pics of them. I saw zero squirrels yesterday – not even a single on the neighborhood. I hope they are not sick (or worse) from that horrible heat wave. Hopefully I see a few this morning.

      • They were better when it got cooler Diane –
        I suspect this last few days of heat likely sent them back to the trees though – we are getting a cool spell again after Wednesday (thankfully).
