  • Gently rinse all of the berries in a large strainer. (You may need to do this in rounds.)

  • Carefully remove the stems from each precious little berry. This is time consuming but all in all it only took me about 10 minutes for 8 quarts. It’s worth it, I promise.

  • Working in batches, lay the berries out on a cookie baking sheet in a single layer. Pat the berries dry with paper towel and freeze for 1 hour until firm. This step helps prevent the berries from sticking together in one large clumb when you place them in a plastic bag.

  • Place the partially frozen berries in a resealable plastic bag and freeze for up to 3 months.

    1. They will be harder to keep from clumping primarily because slicing them will allow the juices to flow out of the berries but it can’t hurt to give it a shot!
