How to Select

Look for berries with a rich color. They should be plump, firm and free of blemishes.

How to Store

Transfer unwashed berries from their original container to a shallow storage container. Keep the berries covered when storing. Wash fresh berries just before using. To freeze blueberries, place them unwashed in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet, and place in the freezer until they are frozen. When frozen, transfer to a zipper-topped freezer bag and return to the freezer until ready to use. Frozen blueberries will keep for up to six months.

How to Prepare

Pop them into your mouth whole, top oatmeal or a parfait with them, or bake them into your favorite treat!
