Is there any way I can keep dew berries for a really long time without a refrigerator? I usually just freeze them in large bags but they get a bad texture from it.

can them perhaps? I would just make a jam or jelly or syrup from them though and then can them thus eliminating any worries over funny textures

store in tupperware, cover with water before freezing, thaw just enough to drain before eating, add cream & sugar (or condensed milk & sugar) and eat immediately.

cook down into pie filling (crockpot on low 8-? hours, should reduce by 1/3-40%, adjust time as needed) and freeze or can.

make jelly/preserves..

or make pies and freeze the pies (my favorite).

how about drying them?

I love dewberries. Got "plumb ate up with chiggers" when I was about 12. We had gone back in the woods to gather dewberries. Mamma got enough from us to make a good bit of jelly, but we all had itchy lines everywere we had elastic on our bodies. I had a ring just below my knees, and another at the legs and waist of my undies, and I think even a ring from where my bra was. Most miserable I ever was( until I suddenly became allergic to poison ivy). But man that was some good jelly and preserves.
