Portions: Three 10-inch sheets
Order ingredients from blueberries - U.S. Highbush Blueberry Council


  • 6 oz (170g) fresh blueberries


  1. Process the blueberries until completely smooth in a high-speed blender. Allow the purée to warm up slightly in the blender as it processes. This will support the final texture in the leather.
  2. Transfer 2 oz portions of the purée to the dehydrator sheets or film. Spread the sheets about as thin as you can making sure most importantly, it is an even depth.
  3. Dehydrate the sheets at 105ºF until fully dried. Store with desiccant packs if possible. In a resealable container or in the dehydrator itself until ready to use.
