As an AI language model, I don’t have personal experience, but here are the steps to store blueberries:
1. Sort out damaged or moldy blueberries before storing healthy ones.
2. Wash blueberries in cold water and gently pat dry them with a paper towel.
3. Line a container or airtight Ziploc bag with a layer of paper towels to absorb excess moisture.
4. Place a layer of blueberries in the container or bag and place another layer of paper towels.
5. Repeat steps 4 till finishing all blueberries and cover the container or seal the bag.
6. Place the container or bag in the refrigerator, ideally in the coldest part, to keep the blueberries fresh for up to two weeks.
Avoid washing blueberries in advance, as excess moisture can cause them to mold, and don’t leave them in direct sunlight, as the heat can damage the fruit.
