Dehydrating fresh blueberries
Posted 14 April 2012 - 01:51 PM
What about just slicing them in half and then dehydrating? Has anyone tried that? If so, how long did it generally take to dry them that way?

BTW, you might see fluffy, purple,papery stuff after they are dry. I believe it's the outer coating and I include that in the bag with the blueberries.
These are really good in granola cereal, etc. They are potent flavor.
For cleaning the dehydrator trays, I soak them in some soapy water. In necessary, I put a tiny bit of bleach in a rinse soak. [not mixing the bleach with the soapy water, of course.... ]

No Congress, no President has been strong enough to stand up to the foreign-controlled Federal Reserve Bank.
Thomas Jefferson was concise in his early warning to the American nation, "If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issuance of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."

I've tried both ways and much prefer blanching. Slicing each berry takes forever and I don't have that much time! When you blanch, it's just a quick dip in and out of boiling water.

Just watch cuz there will likely be more juice from the previously frozen berries of any kind....kinda messy. Might want to wipe it up half way thru the drying. Unless you are trying for fruit leather.
And yes, once frozen, the coating is broken up already.

I use the paper over and over for numerous loads of produce. If I'm doing carrots, I'll use the same paper for 4-5 loads.
When I dehydrate carrots without the wax paper, sometimes some of the carrot slices will wrap themselves around a piece of the slit on the tray and dry on it. It can be really difficult getting it untangled. On the paper, they slide right off.

One of the things I've lost thru the years was all of my fruit leather inserts except one. You know the thin plastic cutting boards that are sold now. I'd bet you could cut them to size for that purpose.
