If you freeze them, they shouldn't be washed - thus keeping their look, arome etc.
Quote:If you grew them, know they have not been doused with pesticides, and are unconcerned about what has been climbing around on them, you don't need to wash them. Otherwise, do wash them, gently, and do it before you freeze them.
Even the raccoons wash the [email protected] off of 'em. That should tell you something.

*nods* I do this with all fruit - if freezing they don't get washed. They get laid out on a cookie sheet and frozen then transferred into bags the next day (this stops them from sticking together!)
If eating right away I rinse and eat.
I'm lucky enough to have wild blueberries that grow along the woods beside my house that I pick and freeze enough for a year.
Some say I should wash them, while some insist I shouldn't. I found a web site that says if they're organic with no pesticides, no need to wash.
What are your thoughts?
Stupid dog woke me up at 5:30 this morning. How about some blueberry pancakes?? (I'm hungry!)
I put a handfull of those blue orbs in my Shredded Wheat and Bran this morning.

You certainly have mighty fine berries, Montana.
those berries look lovely - blueberry waffles would be nice right about now ...
