Care and Storage
For immediate use, blueberries can be placed in a colander and rinsed with cold water. You may dry them on a towel or place them in a salad spinner for a few seconds.
For storage Cook’s Illustrated suggests the following:
1. Wash berries in bowl with 3 cups water mixed with 1 cup white vinegar. Drain in colander and rinse under running water.
2. Place berries in salad spinner lined with 3 layers of paper towels. Spin for 15 seconds or until berries are completely dry.
3. Store berries in paper towel-lined sealable container, keeping lid slightly open to allow excess moisture to escape.
Place freshly washed and dried berries on a cookie sheet and place in freezer. When frozen, place in freezer safe storage container or Food Saver bag and place in freezer.
