How to Freeze Fresh Blackberries

      We love fresh blackberries.  They are so delicious and really are one of summer times most scrumptious treats.  We are lucky enough to have a lot of wild blackberry bushes on the property but you have to be quick because if not, all the birds and bears will get them.  Also, blackberry season is really short so you have to be fast if you want any at all.  We try to go out and pick them daily during the 3-4 weeks they are ripening.  We eat what we want and we also freeze a bunch so we can enjoy them throughout the year.

      The first thing you need to do is wash your blackberries thoroughly.  If you plan on using the blackberries in a pie this winter than I would toss the blackberries in sugar after washing them and then lay them out on a baking sheet that is lined with parchment paper and place the pan in the freezer.  Once they harden (2-4 hours), remove them off of the trays and place them in freezer safe baggies.  Remove as much air as you can and then put them back into the freezer until you need them. 

      If you plan on using them for anything else besides a pie, then follow the same steps as above but just don't toss them in the sugar.  

    Frozen blackberries can be stored in the freezer up to 1 year. 

    If you prefer to dehydrate the blackberries, it is easy to do also.
