U.S. Highbush Blueberry Council

Preserve-ing your precious blueberries

If you’re like us and spent your summer in the fields of your local U-pick farm, hitting a food festival, or farmers’ market each Saturday, you may be wondering how to extend the life of that glorious stockpile. One of our favorite ways is by turning them into preserves and jams, because not only do they taste delicious on just about anything, they’re convenient to keep on-hand, and can even make great gifts for the holidays. If DIY preserves isn’t your jam, not to worry. Check out our tips for how to properly freeze and store your blueberries so they last for up to 10 months, in addition to our frozen recipes section.

For those who are jam-fans, look no further, because we’ve compiled this selection of our favorite sweet AND savory recipes, that can be used on anything from your Saturday morning scones, to cocktail party charcuterie and crostinis.  Whatever the occasion, we have no shortage of recipe ideas to help inspire you and your bunch.
