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:

  1. Rinse berries.
  2. Place raspberries on cookie sheets.
  3. Place in freezer.
  4. Once frozen, place in Ziploc freezer bags in the amounts that would work for you. (2 cup increments?)
  5. Place the full Ziploc bags back in the freezer.
  6. 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!
