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.
  • Blueberries are at their best from May until early October.
