The easy dried blueberries make for an excellent snack. They are healthy and versatile, and serve as the delicious blueberry version of raisins.
Servings: 4 servings
- 3 cups blueberries (300 g)
Preheat your oven to 110 °C / 210 °F / 100 °C fan oven.
Spread fresh blueberries over a baking sheet covered baking tray in a single layer.
Bake the blueberries in the oven until they are dry but still slightly plump. You’re looking for a raisin-like texture, only slightly softer.
It typically takes between 2-5 hours for blueberries to try, depending on the size of your berries.
Allow them to cool down before serving them at room temperature.
Can I use frozen blueberries? – No. They will often be too watery and not dry out properly. The drying process will take significantly longer, and the result will not be as good. Use fresh blueberries.
You can make a big batch of dried blueberries and store them in airtight containers for up to at least 2 weeks. I find that they often store better in the fridge, although this is optional.
I don’t recommend freezing dried blueberries, as they tend to be very watery and mushy after thawing.
