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

Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"

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!
