So we have the most bizarre problem, and I’m not sure what to do about it. I’m normally pretty good about finding stuff on the Internet or in a Library, but for the life of me I can’t find any answers on this one.
As I’ve mentioned before, we like to get berries from local farms around this time of year and process them into various states…but usually frozen.
And here lies the problem. Last year all of our frozen raspberries turned very tart when we froze them. Sweet and delicious when fresh. Incredibly tart, almost inedibly so, when frozen.
Store bought frozen raspberries dont have this problem, and none of our other fruit did, so I figured maybe we did something wrong.
Well, fast forward to this year and we have the same problem. Yummy raspberries before freezing turn into tart berries after freezing.
What the heck is going on here, anyone know?
