Freezer Mixed Berry Puree #SundaySupper

This week Sunday Supper is setting our sights on showing you how to preserve summer bounty.
I love to take advantage of fresh vegetables and fruit from farm stands, farmer’s markets and home gardens. This year I didn’t plant a garden of my own. I was having a few physical and financial challenges that need my attention.
But that doesn’t mean I quit cooking and eating all those fresh grown goodies!
I’m blessed to be living in an area where farm stands and farmer’s markets are only minutes away.
When it comes to trying to extend the season I turn to my freezer. I was never big on canning but I admire people who do.
There are somethings that don’t freeze well alone. I’ve found freezing the finished meal works too. Soups, gravy and many sauces thaw out ready to use.
Berries are some of the more delicate fruit out there. You can quick freeze blueberries and other berries by washing then drying on a towel. spread out berries into a single layer and freeze. When frozen, store in freezer bags. Easy peasy.
Today I chose to make a mixed berry puree that saves time and clean up. You can use this as a base for ice cream, pie, tarts, syrup and so much more!

Mixed Berry puree berries

I used strawberries, blueberries and blackberries.

Puree berries in a blender or food processor.

Mix 1/2 cup to 1 cup of sugar with each quart (2 pounds) of puree depending on how sweet the berries were when pureed.
Stir until sugar is dissolved.

Fill pint or quart plastic freezer bags or tapered widemouth freezer jars.
For jars, allow 1 inch of headspace in quarts and 1/2 inch in pints.
Seal, label, and freeze.

Food for Thought… What would you make with this frozen berry puree? Would you use it for baking? How about as a drink base? I’d love to hear your comments below!

    Mmmm! I’d make pancake syrup with it. Use it to sweeten tea or lemonade! Pour it over ice-cream… so much yum!

  12. Cindy, I am right there with you–no canning for me, but I love to utilize my freezer. I must do this!

  13. What a great idea! Such an easy dessert topper for all winter long!
