Do not allow raspberries to freeze or they may become damaged for fresh use.
If you want to freeze Raspberries for long-term storage, dry them first and place them on a cookie sheet in a single layer and place them in your freezer. Once frozen, you can place them in sealed freezer containers for six to eight months.
After picking, berries will get more juicy, but their sugar content does not increase much.
