One of the best ways to preserve berries for the winter is to freeze them. However, they usually become very soft and leak a lot of juice after defrosting. That's why it's important to know how to do it properly.

Food blogger Kristina Buleziuk (kristina_buleziuk) shared a universal way to freeze berries for the winter on her Instagram page.

How to properly freeze berries for the winter

What you will need:

  • favourite berries
  • cutting board/tray

Freezing technology:

1. Put the berries you plan to freeze on a tray or board covered with a paper towel. It is important to put everything in one layer. Leave the berries in this form for 1.5-2 hours in the freezer.
