Dehydrating Blueberries & Strawberries

I had heard that doing blueberries was almost impossible to do in the dehydrator, but I got a small bunch on sale and tried them. I read online somewhere that if you pop them with a pin , or I used a toothpick, than you would have a better chance of them turning out. So I popped them all and put them in the dehydrator with 4 trays of sliced strawberries. The next morning I woke up and the strawberries were done and perfect. The blueberries took about 4 more hours. They turned out great. I am loving this. I cannot wait until this summer! I will have a garden and get to go to the Farmer's market and get stuff that I am not going to grow myself. This food dehydrator is probably the most useful item that I have ever bought. I love it.

Thanks for the information! I have several gallon bags of blueberries in my freezer. I think I will thaw some and try them in my dehydrator :)

How are you going to store them after you dry them?

I used my FoodSaver to seal them up and then I put them in a rubber made tote that I have been putting anything like that in so no moisture or light gets to it. LOL I also put a couple oxygen absorbers in there. Try to make it all last a little longer. I try to vacuum seal them in small servings so that when a bag is opened it gets used.
