Harvesting and Storage - Freezing Raspberries

Harvesting and clean raspberries

     After harvesting so many raspberries, we had to save them for use though out the year. This week we decide to save them by putting them in the freezer. I have 6 easy steps to have raspberries in the freezer. 

Laying out the raspberries and freezing them
How to Freeze Raspberries
  1. Harvest raspberry/ or buy them
  2. Clean them - soak them in 2-3tbsp of vinegar and gallon of water. I let them soak for about 15-20 minute. This kills bacteria and any bugs in it. 
  3. Drain - I drain then and let them dry for a few minutes. 
  4. Cookie sheet - Put them on a cookie sheet and speard them out. 
  5. Freezer - I stick the whole cookie sheet in the freezer and freeze them for about 4-5 hours. 
  6. Freeze Bag - I take a spatula and scoop the frozen berries off the cookie sheet and but them in a freezer bag.

     It's that easy! Then you have raspberries to cook with or eat frozen. Do you freeze any of your fruit? If so how do you freeze it?
