Forget Raisins And Dry Blueberries In Your Oven For A Sweet Snack
To make incredible dried blueberries, all you have to do is wash and dry fresh blueberries, spread them over a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, and place them in the oven.
Cooking times vary depending on the temperature and size of the blueberries. Some recipes call for drying them at 135 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 hours, while others call for less.
No matter which cooking method you go with, be sure to check on the blueberries periodically to ensure they aren't burning. You can also try using a microwave or air fryer.
When the blueberries come out of the oven, they should look dry and shriveled, without any juice or residual stickiness. Once cool, you can use them as a raisin substitute.
Dried blueberries are plump and chewy, with a concentrated blueberry flavor that's rich and sweet. They can last for up to a year in an airtight container.
