Storing Blueberries

Happy New Year! I know I haven’t been posting consistently since moving stateside; American life has been much busier than I predicted it would be. I’ll kick off 2014 with a simple food post, something I don’t do very often around here.

Healthy and Delicious Breakfast Starter: Raw Blueberries and Walnuts

Since moving back to the Pacific Northwest, my favorite way to start the day is with raw blueberries and walnuts. Some foods just go together, and this is a delicious example. But I’m always stumped when it comes to storing berries, so I’ve had to look it up.

According to the July 2013 issue of Better Homes and Gardens:

“The best way to store berries is in a single layer, loosely covered, in the refrigerator. If you have fresh berries that won’t get eaten in a couple of days, freezing is best. Freeze in a single layer on a baking pan, then transfer to freezer containers or plastic freezer bags and seal. Berries will keep in the freezer for up to a year.”
