The blueberry bushes are finally blooming! If you’re faced with too many of the sweet-tart fruit (is there such a thing?), consider freezing them for the fall or winter. Here’s how. Spread the blueberries on a rimmed baking sheet in a single layer, and place them in the freezer for 2 hours. Then transfer the frozen berries to a freezer bag or airtight container.
Blueberries will keep in the freezer for up to 6 months. When you’re ready to use them, empty the berries into a bowl (to catch the juices), and let sit until they reach room temperature. The berries will be soft—which makes them well suited for smoothies, pies, pancakes, or muffins.
