How to Dry Sweet Blueberries

Step 1

Wash fresh blueberries and dry them with a towel.

Step 2

Place the blueberries in boiling water for 30 to 60 seconds, then dip in very cold water. This "cracks" the waxy skin, to prepare the berries for drying.

Step 3

Lay the berries on a tray and put in a 130 degrees Fahrenheit oven, with the oven door slightly open for air circulation.

Step 4

Keep the berries in the oven for 10 to 20 hours until they are leathery, then take out.

Step 5

Store dried blueberries in an airtight container in a cool, dry place. They can last up to a year.
