How To Enjoy Blue Honey Blueberries Year-Round
While the season may be shorter than you like for locally-grown berries, you can still enjoy them all year long. Just buy extra berries and store them in your freezer. You can enjoy the blueberries in recipes all year long. Use berries that are unwashed and completely dry. Discard any berries that look bruised or shriveled. Spread the berries onto a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Put them in the freezer for approximately 30 minutes. The berries will freeze individually. Place the frozen berries into a plastic freezer bag or freezer container. When you are ready to add the berries to your favorite recipes, you can measure out the portion you need and put the remaining berries back into the freezer. Just remember to rinse off the berries before adding them to your recipes.
Blueberries Are Nutritious:
Picking Out The Best Berries:
Fresh blueberries grown at Blue Honey Farms are usually in season by the end of June through the second week of August. Depending on the weather, the season can last a week or two longer or shorter. When buying our berries, look for firm, plump dry berries with smooth skins. Size doesn't matter, but the color of the berries does. Reddish berries are not ripe. As you would with any kind of fruit, avoid signs of mold and soft or shriveled fruit.
How To Store Blueberries:
Refrigerate fresh blueberries as soon as you get them home in a covered bowl or storage container. Do not wash the berries until you are ready to eat them or use in a recipe. Unless you are freezing your blueberries, use them within 10 days of buying them.
