Act Now to Enjoy Blueberries All Winter Long

© Tommy Maenhout |

Because of the growing conditions, many local blueberry farms no longer have blueberries available this season. If you are lucky enough to find them, perhaps at a farmer’s market, be sure to freeze them for winter use.

Blueberries are super easy to freeze – simply rinse, dry, freeze on a tray, then put in freezer bags. Great for smoothies, baked goods, or even as a snack!

If you’ve missed out, you can still find locally grown dried blueberries.
