  • 2 lbs fresh blackberries


  • Rinse your berries. Blackberries are very delicate so I recommend being as gentle as possible while rinsing them under tap water.
  • Air dry. Spread blackberries out on a towel and let them dry for a few minutes. Placing a second towel on top and gently massaging them to dry helps speed things up.
  • Arrange on a large baking sheet. I love these baker's half sheets.
  • Freeze for 4 hours- overnight.
  • Transfer to a freezer bag, labelled with the contents & date. Pictured in this post are these reusable silicone freezer bags.
  • Freeze for up to 1 year!
