STORAGE TIP

Store in refrigerator
up to 10 to 14 days
Sort the blueberries to remove debris and stems. Separate out soft, broken blueberries. Put unwashed blueberries in a breathable container. Wash blueberries right before eating or cooking. Special Attention: Fruits do better in refrigerator crisper drawers that are adjusted for lower humidity. Also, don’t pack crisper drawers to tight because that reduces airflow. Blueberries like to breathe!

Store in freezer
up to 1 year
Sort, remove all stems and leaves, rinse clean, let completely air dry by laying on paper towels or cloth (just remember you may have stained cloths when finished.) Place dried berries on a clean cookie sheet. You do not have to thaw blueberries to cook with them. 

Store blueberries by drying
up to 1 year
Sort your blueberries by size to insure even drying. Follow instructions as provided by your dehydrator. Store in clean, dry bags in a cool, dark space, away from heat sources. Other durable containers like jars work well for storing dehydrated blueberries. Dried blueberries can also be stored in your freezer. Dried blueberries are perfect for home made granola, salads and snacks.
