Freezing Blue Berries

I went to two of the cutest places to buy my blueberries. I wish I had pictures for you. The first one priced them at $30.00 a flat ~ way too much for my budget. The second one had them on sale for $19.00 a flat. I was so thankful.
I love to freeze them. I learned that after washing and patting them dry, you should place them on cookie sheets like this. Put them in your freezer over night like this and take them out and bag them up like
this in the morning. Keep the labeled bags in the freezer. They are perfect all winter. My blue berry bushes have blight and are not thriving. I am hoping that a spray with copper in it will change that. Bless you ladies, and have a lovely day. Kathi

Oh wow. There's no way those would last me all winter... I'd eat them like candy! :)

I have been looking to buy some berries to freeze, and you just answered all my questions. I wasn't sure what was too costly or what the going rate to buy that many would be! I will keep my eyes open and then freeze them as you did!
I also want to make some jam if possible!

Love,
kelly

And had to tell you ....each time I reach for my concordance I think of you and what a great help you have been to me!
