  • Rinse your blackberries in a colander and set aside to drain and air dry a bit.
  • Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment or a silpat. 
  • Add the blackberries to the baking sheet and place the tray in the freezer.  Pro tip: If you have a lot of blackberries to freeze at once, lay another piece of parchment on top of the berries and top with an additional layer of fruit. 
  • Freeze for about six hours. 
  • Break apart any clumps that have formed on the baking sheet and transfer the blackberries to freezer-proof storage.
