Berries and fruits can be easily frozen for later use. For berries, wash them and lay them out on a flat surface to dry completely. For fruits, first, wash off the fruit, then peel off the skins and cut them up into the desired size. Then put the berries and cut up fruit in zip lock bags and place them in the freezer. After they are frozen, berries and fruits can last up to a year! This allows for many different delicious options to come. Frozen berries and fruits are perfect for additions to smoothies. Since they are already frozen, sometimes you don’t even need to add ice to the ingredients!
Berries and fruits also make delicious fillers for pies and wonderful additions to other baked goods such as cupcakes, or cakes. When baking with berries and fruits, they can either be made with fresh berries right off the plant or frozen from months before.
