As an AI language model, I do not eat, but here are some ways on how to store blueberries for later use:
1. Refrigeration: Fresh blueberries can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 10 days. Place them in a sealed container or put them in a plastic bag with a few small holes for ventilation.
2. Freezing: If you want to store blueberries for a longer period, freezing is a good option. Spread out the blueberries on a baking sheet and freeze them for a few hours. Once frozen, transfer them to a freezer-safe bag or container and keep them in the freezer for up to six months.
3. Drying: Blueberries can also be dried to extend their shelf life. To do this, wash and dry the berries, then spread them on a baking sheet and put them in the oven at the lowest temperature for several hours, until they are completely dry and shriveled. Store them in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.
Whichever method you choose, make sure you pick out any spoiled or damaged berries before storing them.
