Make the Most of Blueberry Season with Blueberry Preserves and Dehydrating


Homemade Blueberry Preserves With Yogurt

Blueberries are a superfood — one of the fruits highest in lycopene and antioxidants. Take advantage of their season and stock up. Unfortunately, their skins get tough when frozen, but they do very well in the dehydrator and make scrumptious preserves to dollop on plain yogurt, slather on toast, or to fill quick little tartlets.

This is a very thick, low-sugar preserve, very different from the Sure-Jel type.

Note: Wait to wash blueberries until just before you use them. If you are freezing, don’t wash them until you are thawing them to use. Wash just before putting them on the dehydrator or into the jam pot.

Thank you for these blueberry recipes. They came at a perfect time because my bushes are outdoing themselves this year. The low sugar jam is exactly what I needed, we prefer to taste the berries instead of the sugar jam with blueberry coloring. Do you have a low sugar fig preserves recipe you would share?
