Blueberries: Our fresh blueberries will keep 3 weeks refrigerated or 1 year frozen. Berries will keep a few days or more at room temperature and should be chilled as soon as possible. For best results do not wash the berries prior to storing (fridge or freezer). Washing is not necessary but if you like to, only wash berries prior to consuming. Handle the berries as little as possible. Both washing and over handling will remove the natural film on the berry called the “bloom”. The bloom is necessary for longer shelf life. Always allow air to circulate while refrigerated, never store in a sealed container or bag in the fridge. Remove berries from refrigerator one to two hours before serving. Berries are at their fullest flavor at room temperature. When freezing store in a sealed container or freezer bag. Dry unwashed berries will freeze individually (like little marbles) and will pour out easily. For most recipes thawing the berries is not needed.
