Blueberry Tips

  1. Choose blueberries that are firm and have a lively, uniform hue colored with a whitish bloom.
  2. Wash berries right before eating. Washing removes the bloom that protects the berriesí skins from degradation.
  3. Store ripe blueberries in the refrigerator for up to three days.
  4. Before freezing ripe blueberries, wash, drain and remove any damaged berries. Spread berries out on a cookie sheet or baking pan, place in the freezer until frozen, then put berries in a plastic bag to store in the freezer.
  5. Add blueberries to your breakfast shake, breakfast cereal, or dessert for a colorful, antioxidant rich meal.
