If you don’t know how to freeze berries, don't worry, it's "berry" easy. Howard teaches us how to freeze strawberries and blueberries in the video above.
- Rinse berries well. Shake off excess water.
- Lay a paper towel on a tray and place rinsed berries on the tray to dry.
- Meanwhile, pick out and discard any berries that are bruised, marred, or discolored.
- Remove stems from remaining berries. Pat dry with a paper towel.
- Place the entire tray in the freezer for several hours. This method will freeze the berries individually rather than in one big lump
- Once the berries have frozen on the tray, remove the tray from the freezer and store the berries in a plastic baggie. (Tip: Howard recommends placing the plastic bag in any container you have at home and folding the edges of the bag over the lip of the container. This makes putting the berries in the bag much easier.)
- Roll out any excess air from the baggie and place the bag of berries back in the freezer until you need them!
Money Saving Tip: Frozen fruits and vegetables will keep in the freezer for 8 months to a year. Buy them on sale and freeze them at home to have year-round!
