Dehydrated Blueberries, Blackberries and Raspberries
Now I know. It was a waste of great produce. How sad. None of these berries were edible once they were dehydrated. Most of them were still wet in the center or on a side after almost 30 hours in the dehydrator. At that point, I tried eating one, gagged and dumped everything into the garbage. I can't even describe the taste, it was almost like it was charred. Is that even possible with a dehydrator?
For whatever reason, my berries did not dehydrate properly at all. I am going to do some more research though and see if there are tricks to making it work. The thought of having berries at my fingertips year round tempts me to try again someday.
