What to look for while picking the berries?
- Good berries have a light powdery grey-blue colour, the so-called bloom.
- Pick only largest plumpest berries, these are the ripest.
- Do not wash the berries, it will damage the fruit.
- Refrigerate the fresh berries as soon as possible after picking.
How to maintain the high quality of the berries?
Do not wash the berries
When refrigerated immediately after picking the berries can be kept for up to 2 weeks. Alternatively the berries are excellent for freezing. Put them straight into the freezer and do not thaw frozen berries before cooking.
