How To Thaw Frozen Blackberries In The Microwave

This is the fastest way to defrost frozen blackberries.
Prep Time 5 mins
Microwave Time 1 min
Total Time 6 mins


  • A colander/strainer
  • Microwave-safe plate
  • Paper towel


  • Place the berries in a colander/strainer and rinse them thoroughly under cold tap water. Shake off as much excess water as you can.
  • Pat the blackberries dry with a clean towel or paper towel.
  • Place a sheet of paper towel on a microwavable plate.
  • Spread out 1 cup (or less) of blackberries on the paper towel. Leave space between the blackberries.
  • Microwave the blackberries for 15 seconds on 100% power.
  • Try a blackberry—if it's still frozen, microwave for 5 to 10 seconds and try another blackberry. They should still have a little frost on them (if not, it's not the end of the world.)
