Blueberries or Cranberries
When you're dehydrating berries, it takes a little more preparation, but it's well
worth the time and effort! You can then enjoy them year 'round!
Blueberries are a wonderful source of vitamin A, vitamin C,
followed by vitamin K. They have trace amounts of Folate,
Choline, Niacin, vitamin E, Betaine, Thiamine, and Riboflavin.
The minerals they contain are: Phosphorus, Magnesium, Calcium, with trace amounts of Manganese, Iron, Zinc, and Copper. These fantastic berries contain Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids too.
And how about a beautiful blueberry pie – and dress up plain old cereal in the morning!

Ready to get busy dehydrating berries? Here's how:
If using a frozen variety, ignore steps 1 and 2
- Prepare your berry of choice by rinsing them in a sieve, and remove the stems.
- Dip them into boiling water until you see their skins crack! This helps in the dehydrating process.
- Arrange them on your food dehydrator
trays, making sure they don't touch each other so that air can
- Turn on your dehydrator and set the temperature between 125°F and 135°F (or per your food dehydrator's instructions).
- They will feel leathery when dried sufficiently.
- Drying time: between 10-18 hours.
- Remember to rotate your food dehydrator trays, for even drying.
