Okay, so this is probably one of the simplest fruits you can freeze, but I thought I’d let you know how to freeze raspberries! This method will actually work for several different berries; blueberries, strawberries, blackberries…
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 how to freeze raspberries:
- Rinse berries.
- Place raspberries on cookie sheets.
- 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. I also like the fact that they’re being frozen in their natural state. No added sugar!
