When to Look for Blueberries: In the Okanagan Valley, blueberries begin ripening in the first week of July and finish in the middle of September, depending on the variety. The earliest variety is typically Duke, and the last Elliot. We do all our freezing at the perfect ripeness.
Best Uses for Blueberries: Blueberries are fantastic in desserts, oatmeal, and pancakes, but they’re also good in savory dishes. Get inspired by First Nation recipes and use blueberries to flavor roasts and stews, add them into savory cornbread, or even on pizza!
How to Store Frozen Blueberries: We vacuum seal all our berries for optimal freshness. When opening the bag leave in the fridge or counter to dethaw and separate the pieces. To reseal add to a larger bag or use a reusable clip.
