Health Benefits of Blueberries

Blueberries are a powerhouse superfood we can’t get enough of. Here are some health benefits of blueberries:

  • High in antioxidants and nutrient-rich with fiber, vitamin C, vitamin K, and manganese
  • Blueberries improve cholesterol levels and lower blood pressure
  • Improves insulin sensitivity
  • May improve cognitive function

How to Store Blueberries

Whether you’re picking your own blueberries are buying them at the market, here are a few tips:

  • Choose blueberries that are plump and smooth with a dark blue-purple hue. Avoid shriveled, wrinkly ones.
  • Store at room temperature if consumed within a day.
  • Refrigerate for 5 to 10 days.
  • Freeze for longer storage (I have several gallon bags in my freezer for year-long baking!)
  • To freeze, spread dry blueberries in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Cover and freeze overnight before transferring to an air-tight container for up to 1 year.

  1. total bomb out for me, should have thawed blueberries, toothpick came out clean but turned out bottom half was raw and blueberries lined the bottom, probably won’t try again, i am not a novice, but didn’t thaw berries when i thought I should

    1. I am so sorry about that. You are absolutely right, the berries do need to be thawed and drained. I had a note on the post but it wasn’t easy enough to find. I’ve corrected that. Thank you for taking your time to share!
