Okay, so this is probably one of the simplest fruits you can freeze, but I thought I’d let you know how I do it!
Yesterday I had the opportunity to pick some raspberries with a friend. We tried to pay, but she wouldn’t take our money! What an unexpected blessing! Since it’s just my husband and I, I knew we wouldn’t be able to eat them all before they went bad so I decided to freeze some for smoothies or whatever we fancy.
Here’s the the instructions for the simplest fruit to freeze:
- Place raspberries on cookie sheets. (I didn’t even wash them as they were organic and I thought any bugs would die once they were frozen! I don’t mind eating them if I don’t know…)
- Place in freezer
- Once frozen, place in Ziploc freezer bags in the amounts that would work for you! (2 cup increments?)
- Place the full Ziploc bags back in the freezer.
- Enjoy however you’d like!
I really like freezing fruits as I think they’re often easier to freeze then canning. And I like the fact that I freeze them in their natural state. No added sugar!
