I bought a ton of blueberries last week at Costco and now the kids are getting sick of them. I was wondering if I could freeze them so we could eat them in a few weeks. I have one of those food vacuum sealers. Anyone done this before? Thanks!

You definitely can!

What I've done: Wash berries and spread them out on a cookie tray. Put the whole tray in the freezer. Once the berries are frozen transfer them into a container. That will prevent them from freezing together in big blocks.

I've never used a vacuum sealer, so I'm no help there!

What she said. Blueberries are the easiest to freeze and use later, basically no prep whatsover (except perhaps a wash).

DS, 10/07. Allergies: peanut, egg, wheat. We've added dairy back in. And taken it back out again. It causes sandpaper skin with itchy patches and thrashing during sleep. Due w/ #2 late April, 2012.
