Blueberry Tips & Tricks
- “Put blueberries in a zip lock baggy with some flour and shake them so they don’t sink in the batter.” — RoxanneG
- At the store, choose blueberries that are firm, deeply colored, and uniform in size.
- Blueberries stay fresh up to 5 days.
- To freeze, arrange on a baking sheet in a single layer. Then put them in a plastic bag or other container. They should last in the freezer until blueberry season next year.
