...AND CHEAPER...:

The twelve best frozen food values (Laurel Randolph, MAY 30, 2015, CS Monitor)

1. Berries

Frozen fruit is typically a good deal across the board, and this is definitely true with berries. While price checking at my local grocery, the savings were most noticeable with blueberries. Fresh ones were 66 cents an ounce, while frozen were a mere 25 cents. Strawberries, cranberries, and raspberries are also great values. They are washed and frozen at their peak, and the quality is consistent all year. Fresh berries also tend to go bad quickly, and freezing eliminates that problem while locking-in nutrients.

Frozen berries are especially handy for making smoothies (they actually work better than fresh), pancakes, muffins, and other baked goods.

The 3lb bag of Wyman's blueberries at BJ's is an especially good deal--$3 cheaper than the grocery store.
