One berry, two berries, red berries, blueberries … it's easy to love berry season. It's also easy for the single home cooks to get carried away and buy more than we can immediately eat. I love berries but I've had to learn two things: how to keep berries from getting moldy and gross and what to make with a lot of berries.

Here's a handy guide to some of my favorite recipes, organized by the amount of berries needed, so you can use up every last one. Try substituting one type of berry for another.
