What do you do when you are given 20 cartons of perfectly ripe berries? I’m talking blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, and strawberries. I did the following:

  1. Eat as many of them in one sitting as possible.
  2. Make about 13 different recipes.
  3. Freeze the rest! 

As I was walking out of the Healthy Living Summit, I was stopped by Driscoll’s who asked if I was local and if I wanted some berries to take home.  Of course my obvious answer was, YES, not thinking i was going to walk away with 20 cartons of goodness!

Perfect goodness.

So sweet and yummy. These raspberries. Nom.

I decided that I would make a few recipes with these fresh berries and that it made most sense to freeze the rest so none went to waste. I can’t tell you how easy it is to freeze em!

All you need is a baking sheet, some parchment paper, and a plastic bag.

At the Minneapolis Farmer’s Market, you can find a carton of fresh berries for $1.00 and I’m sure it’s similar at your local farmer’s market.

Homework: Purchase some local, fresh berries (lots of them), and freeze them so you don’t have to spend an arm and leg this winter for fresh berries!
