Dried Blueberries

Dehydrating fruits is my favorite way to store them for later use. Dehydrated blueberries can be used for oatmeal, cakes and more.

There are two ways to dehydrate blueberries. The more difficult way, which includes blanching the berries, I have found results in better flavor. I have listed both below.

Step one for both options:
Wash blueberries in cold water with vinegar.

Option A. (The easy option).
Cut blueberries in half and place on your dehydrator tray. Turn dehydrator on to 135F. Berries will take 8 to 12 hours to dry. Place in air tight container.

Option B.
Step 1. Boil Blueberries for 3 min. I place my blueberries in a strainer and then boil them in my canner.


Step 2: Place berries on your dehydrator tray and squish them with a spoon or spatula.

Step 3: Turn dehydrator on to 135F. Berries will take 8 to 12 hours to dry. Place in air tight container.

Option 1 on the right. Option 2 on the left.
