Default Freezing Fruit Link

I am preparing to brew another batch of mead and was concerned about freezing fruit for future use.

I did a search and came up with this helpful link:

Basically some of the same info:

Good stuff! I think freezing actually improves the quality of my blackberry ciders, better juice extraction after rupturing the cell walls.

I agree. If you want frozen soft berries to retain the same texture and shape as fresh berries i say don't bother. If you want to save the FLAVOUR for brewing, cooking or preserves then freezing is THE best way of 'extending the seasonality' of fruits and utilizing your hard picked/bought gains a few months later - Just remember to label them with dates and use them as quickly as you can!
