Oven Dried Blueberries

If there’s one health-conscious blogger I always admire, it’s Lesley of Homemade Grits. She shared this super simple and healthy blueberry recipe.

Toss the berries with honey and spread them on a baking sheet…

Pop them in the oven on low heat and bake. Told you it was simple!

These dried berries are delicious sprinkled over yogurt or cereal, but also make a sweet snack just by themselves.

Too bad the leftover parchment paper is super sticky, it could pass for a funky piece of modern art. Don’t you think?

Oven Dried Blueberries
from Whole Living

What you will need:

1 cup blueberries
1 teaspoon honey

Heat oven to 225 degrees. Toss blueberries with honey in a bowl. Bake berries on a parchment-lined baking sheet until shriveled but still supple, about 2 hours. Let cool. Berries will keep in an airtight container for up to 1 month. This recipe yields 1/2 cup of berries.

Tip: Do not place too many berries in the oven at once. The amount of moisture released will cause the drying process to take FOREVER.

    Curious if you think this would work with frozen blueberries? I guess I can always just try and see. But either way, great tip and thanks for sharing! I live in Alaska and we are going blueberry picking next month. I’ll definitely be trying a batch of these!

      Hmm, that’s a good question. I’m not sure how that would turn out. If you give it a try let me know how it goes. Happy blueberry picking!
