Since it is raspberry season I thought I would share with you how to freeze raspberries. This process can also be used for any other berry.
Step 1: Rinse your berries in cold water in a colander (be careful not to mash). Discard any damaged berries that are growing mold or no longer fresh.
Step 2: While still slightly damp line the raspberries in rows on a metal cookie sheet.
Step 3: Place in the freezer carefully without tilting the pan. Leave in the freezer for 2 hours. This is called flash freezing. You are simply freezing the berries individually so that when placed in a storage bag or container that they won't "lump" together.
Step 4: Finally transfer the berries from the cookie sheet to a freezer safe storage container. Be sure to date your berries with a permanent marker.
