Choose blueberries that are firm and have a tendency to move freely upon shaking the container. If they don’t move, they are probably soft or damaged. Blueberries should be free from moisture since the presence of water will cause the berries to decay. Don’t wash your blueberries until right before you are ready to eat them. When you are ready to store them, make sure you remove any crushed or moldy berries to prevent the rest from spoiling. Store in a covered container in the refrigerator where they will keep for up to 3 days. You can freeze ripe berries, even though it might change the texture and flavor. Just wash, drain and remove any damaged berries before freezing. Spread the berries out on a cookie sheet and place in the freezer until frozen. Then put the berries in a plastic bag and store in the freezer. This will ensure uniform texture upon thawing. Either way you store them you are sure to enjoy them!
