Nothing beats the taste of homegrown frozen raspberries! Stock up while they are in the full swing of harvesting!
One of the ways you can preserve harvested blessing and to enjoy all year round is to freeze these berries. It’s best to freeze produce when it’s at the peak of freshness, not too green, too ripe or mushy.
A few hours before freezing, turn down the thermostat to 0 – degrees F to freeze fresh produce quickly so it’s not so mushy when it gets thawed (then don’t forget to turn the freezing temperature back to normal). During cold winter months or non-raspberry harvest time, you can make a tasty recipe out of your own homegrown berries.
You Will Need:
Freezing plastic/glass containers of your choice
Freshly picked raspberries
1. Pick and place raspberries onto a plate with a little space in between them.
2. After the berries are frozen remove ’em from the freezer and immediately pack them into containers. If the berries stay out too long they will unfreeze and stick together once frozen again.
3. Place them into freezing containers to the top.
4. Close the container with a lid and freeze.
These raspberries can stay in the freezer until you harvest new fruit the next year. Just take one container out of the freezer and make the recipe of your choice.
