By February, I am tired of winter. Living in Colorado, the winter means crops are dormant. Any fresh fruits or vegetables we get are usually trucked in from a warmer part of the country.
This is the time of year when I am so thankful for frozen berries.
Nothing speaks to me of the promise of spring quite like the taste of berries. The burst of sweetness from a frozen berry can transport me to warm summer memories.
Using frozen berries in recipes definitely chases away my winter blues.
If you have never frozen fresh berries for yourself, make sure you bookmark (or pin!) Freezing Raspberries and Strawberries. I promise you that next February when you open your freezer to find a little taste of summer tucked inside, you will be so grateful you froze those berries for yourself!
Although not all of these recipes specify “frozen berries,” frozen berries will work just as well as fresh.
