Happy Friday and welcome to Friday Finds!
It’s the second week of July and it’s blueberry season here in Connecticut. The blueberries are local and the prices are great! Have you ever frozen blueberries before? Simply place your fresh blueberries on a cookie sheet and freeze them in a single layer. Make sure you do not rinse them before you do this. Once frozen, place them into a plastic bag or container and keep them in the freezer for future baking! When you are ready to use them, rinse them while still frozen and add them to your, muffins and pancakes. They will last in the freezer several months.
