Blueberries or Cranberries
Dehydrating berries take a little more preparation, but it's well
worth the time and effort! You can then enjoy them year 'round!

followed by vitamin K. They have trace amounts of Folate,
Choline, Niacin, vitamin E, Betaine, Thiamin, and Riboflavin.

Skip the dip in boiling water! How? Buy your blueberries and cranberries frozen! You'll be able to skip the step because the manufacturer will have already done that step for you. How neat is that? Plus you won't get stained fingers ... :-)
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.

And that reminds me, my mom makes a killer dessert pie:
Mom's Cranberry and Pineapple Pie.
Mom makes this pie for special occasions — like birthdays — and always at Christmas time. Our family came from England and our usual Christmas after-dinner treat was "Trifle" — a layered sponge cake soaked in sherry, topped with fruit, custard, and cream — and now we enjoy this pie just as much!
