    Hi, we pick blueberries and just freeze without washing on a cookie

    sheet, then transfer to bags or containers. Take out of the freezer

    and give a quick rinse--then use. We just used the last we had, in

    pancakes........Yum I had them for approximately 1 year in the freezer.

    Yummy! Frozen blueberries are the best! You can look them over and either put them right in a freezer bag or on a cookie sheet andthen bag. Personally, I don&#39;t wash them--especially after looking them over good, but you can. (Of course if I wasn&#39;t doing the picking--I would be more particular about washing them!)
    Enjoy! I need to get to my local field too!

    <div style="font-family:arial, helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:12pt;">I have often frozen blues after picking. If you insist on washing before freezing, you need to spread them out to completely dry before freezing. Most people don't wash them. You can freeze them in a couple of ways. Some people spread the berries out on trays and pop in the freeze to freeze before bagging. Others put in a bag and stick them in the freezer. I have had success with both methods When ready to use, all you need to do is take the bag out of the freezer, pour out what you want and pop the bag back in the freezer. (If the berries are at all wet when you freeze them, they will stick together when they freeze and you will have problems getting just what you want out of the bag.) If you only want them for your cereal, you might want to
    try dehydrating them.
    Hope this helps,
    Mary

    We have a you pick farm near our house also. I froze about 30 pints one year. The farm owners advised me to just throw the blueberries into a bag without washing them, then freeze the bag. You wash the berries when you thaw them out. There was a reason for that but I can't remember what it was. Anyway they all came out perfect.

    yes and yes. here we do freeze berries yearly even blue berrys we use

    the same methods for all kinds. first one is lay the berrys out on a

    cookie sheet and freeze when frozen fill up a freezer bag. the other

    method is put the berrys in a freezer bag and pop in freezer. when

    ready to use take bag out and smak it with your hand to loosen up

    berries and use the loose ones. works for us.

    Yes. Wash the berries, remove any stems. Let them drain a bit. Put

    them in a container in a single layer, then put them in the

    freezer. Once frozen, pour them in the container you will keep them

    in and you can get out just what you want to use. Around here, it's

    usually a milk jug that's been well washed that holds frozen

    blueberries, or shelled pecans.
