Yesterday, I went raspberry picking.
I like to freeze them for use in smoothies or on cereal in the winter. First, I gently wash them by emerging them in cold water and light spraying.
After draining, the little red gems are placed on paper towels to absorb the water.
Before going any further, it is time for a quick quality test. Raspberries on cereal.
After drying, I gently place them on parchment paper on a cookie sheet. And because I don’t want any extra moisture in the berries when I freeze them, I do a quick dry with the hair dryer (weird, but effective).
Now they are ready for the freezer.
After they are frozen (a couple of hours), I place them in freezer bags.
Yum!!! Doing blueberries next.
