Don't rinse off your blueberries

...that is, if you plan to freeze them.  We have learned from the Internet (so it must be true!) that if you rinse off blueberries before freezing them it will make their skin tougher.  Instead, freeze them and wash them before use.  Apparently, for all other berries washing before freezing works just fine.

We came home from our vacation in Maine with a nice quart box filled with native blueberries.  We're hoping for a few batches of blueberry infused treats this winter... a pie or two, blueberry pancakes, blueberry muffins.... yummy.

Not a bad deal for six dollars American!
