It’s rare that we have fresh blueberries on hand. Mostly because they are just so darn expensive. On the other hand, we ALWAYS have frozen blueberries in our freezer. So when I went to make a few recipes last weekend that called for fresh blueberries I was in a little bit of a predicament. I didn’t want to run to the store and the last time I tried to bake with frozen blueberries when the recipe had called for fresh it was a disaster! So I got to thinking. Maybe there’s a simple way to substitute frozen blueberries for fresh ones? I was in luck – there is! Best part about it? It is CRAZY simple!

First, all you need to do is take the desired measurement of frozen blueberries and run the them under cold water a few times. At first the water will be very purple. Continue to rinse until the water nearly runs clear.
