Tips & Tricks
- Both methods work for nearly any kind of berry.
- Use fresh berries! Don't use berries that already look rotten or soft.
- Thaw the berries before you eat them.
- You can also cut the berries if you add sugar, but don't cut the berries if you plan on freezing them with no sugar.
- There are many magazines that write about things like freezing berries, so you can check those if you want to do a lot of this. Some examples are Southern Living and page=1 BHG.
