Strawberry season is all over here, so we are now waiting to be able to go and pick blueberries. Blueberries are the easiest, I believe to freeze. We usually pick a few containers of blueberries that are not overripe and not under ripe. We wash them in a colander under cold water. We then lay them out on a cookie sheet and let them dry. After they are dry we put the cookie sheet into the freezer. When they are hard like frozen peas you take them out and put them into freezer bags that seal shut. It is a good idea to put them into the amounts that you like to use in a recipe. They can be placed frozen into anything that will be baked, such as muffins or cakes.
We are continuing to use everything as a learning lesson. We talk about how they grow and show how easy it is to pick and preserve the blueberries. We do not intend to stop learning just because it is summer. The garden that we have planted is doing great! We already have flowers on our pepper plants. Last year our best plants were eggplant, tomatoes and peppers. We are off to a wonderful start.
