Frequently Asked Questions

Still have some questions about blueberries? Here are a few commonly asked ones:

How do I choose the best blueberries?

Look for plump, firm blueberries that have a dusty blue color. Avoid any that are shriveled, soft, or have a moldy appearance.

How should I store blueberries?

Blueberries are best stored in the refrigerator in a shallow container with a lid or covered in plastic wrap. You can wash them in advanced so they are ready to use in your favorite blueberry recipe.

Can I freeze blueberries?

Yes! To freeze blueberries, spread them out in a single layer on a baking sheet and freeze until solid. Then transfer them to a freezer bag or airtight container for long-term storage. 

Can I substitute frozen blueberries in recipes that call for fresh?

I mostly prefer fresh blueberries. However, you can substitute frozen blueberries for fresh in most recipes. Just be sure to thaw them completely and drain any excess liquid before using.
