TIPS FOR SELECTION AND STORAGE OF BLACKBERRIES
Pick only ripe blackberries; these are black all over with no red drupelets. A gentle tug will release the blackberry from the stem. Handle blackberries gently; they are fragile. There is no need to wash blackberries before either using or freezing. Blackberries will keep in the refrigerator for about two (2) days if they are unwashed and stored in an uncovered container. To freeze blackberries, simply put them unwashed in freezer containers, seal, and place in freezer.
