Cook it, puree it, re-freeze it. No problem and simple.

Hi, you will only be able to puree the fruit after it has been frozen as its compounds will break down when defrosted and turn into a mush anyway. It is not advisable to freeze pureed fruit or even fruit juice unless it has been pasteurised. I hope this helps
Fruit does not harbour the organisms that cause food poisoning because of the fruit acids present so you will not be in any danger if you re-freeze the puree. If you cook the fruit when you puree it you will be perfectly safe. If space is a problem why not bottle it or make it into jam, it will last for years then and you can store it out of the way

Thanks folks, I had a guess that by puree it I was effectively cooking it so changing its state.

We have given loads away, made jam and other stuff too. still have two freezer shelves left. Didn't pick 1/2 of one bush (have two) and have given them both a good prune now. only have a small kitchen so jars would take up lots of room for me.

Thanks again for all you help
