Blackberries revert to red after freezing?!

Phyrie | Aug 25, 201107:50 PM     2

Hi,
Well, the blackberries are finally ripe. Took long enough, didn't it? Last year, my husband swore that some of his perfectly ripe berries must have turned red in the freezer, rather than my suggestion that he'd picked less-than-ripe berries.

Well, yesterday he picked a gallon of berries, and spread them on trays for freezing. He showed them to me, to verify they were all black, with no red berries in the bunch. But sure enough this morning, after the night in the freezer, virtually every berry is some shade of red, from very deep to almost bright red.

Has anyone else had this happen to your berries in the freezer?

Thanks, Phyrie
