    Default Freeze-dried blueberries

    I bought some freeze-dried blueberries at the suggestion of someone
    here - TJ's had them. Today, I was out of fresh ones so I tried them in
    my usual fruit-and-almond butter breakfast. Even after sitting for a
    few minutes, they were like corn puffs in texture. We put some others
    into warm water, and they were softer but still crunchy after 15-20
    minutes.

    The package contains no reconstitution instructions - what am I missing
    here?

    Thanks in advance.

    Not everything that is dried rehydrates well (or at all). Beef jerky,
    squid, apricots, mango, etc...

    What you're missing is that the recommendation came from clueless AOL newbie
    Sheldon "Pussy" Katz, and is therefore worthless.

    Heh! You can rehydrate them in expensive blueberry juice. I have
    been thinking about freeze-dried fruit, mainly because I can't
    find unsweetened dried cranberries.

    What about soaking them in plain water to remove some of the sugar?

    An honest poster would have simply asked if anyone knows how to
    *rehydrate* (not "reconstitute") freeze dried blueberries. That you
    inserted that you purchased freeze dried blueberries at the
    recommendation of someone here, but without mentioning their name,
    says you're trolling, a **** stirring bastard who never bought any
    berries.

    >Heh! You can rehydrate them in expensive blueberry juice. I have

    >find unsweetened dried cranberries.


    You wouldn't like unsweetened dehy cranberries because they contain
    very little natural sugar, they'd be bitter same as fresh without
    added sugar (Craisins contain very little by way of nutrition other
    than carbs from added sugar.. I'd not classify them a fruit, more a
    confection). With all other fruit dehydration concentrates its
    natural sugar making added sugar unnecessary... in fact dehydrated
    fruit is often used as a sweetener.

    Freeze dried fruit rehydrates the same as ordinary dehydrated fruit...
    a lot depends on factors such as available liquid, temperature, and
    time... the trolling bastard above never says HOW he tried to
    rehydrate (yet more proof he's a liar). There is plenty of
    information available on the net about how to work with freeze dried
    foods... douchebag Freides is simply too low IQ to look it up... but
    of course the TROLLiNG **** STIRRER never bought any berries, he has
    never offered any useable on topic information, only TAKES... is here
    to bitch, moan, and cause grief... the scumbag is obviously a
    miserable no-life POS.

    Scroll down to read the reviews... seems no one has problems with
    rehydration:

    I dunno. With me, it's kind-of all or nothing.

    I don't know whether *I* ever saw unsweetened dried cranberries,
    but I recently have read people's comments to the effect that they
    can no longer find such things, which indicated to me that they
    HAD found them in the past. Heck, I can just use fresh cranberries.

    It doesn't bother me. Sheldon was here before I was, and I have
    gotten used to him. If he or anyone else gets into something I
    don't want to read, I just glide right by. He does post useful
    things too.

    Thank you, Jean. I try to help people by imparting useful cooking
    information but some are resentful that it's not they who are helpful
    and so they make smarmy comments thinking they can without being held
    accountable... I don't think any decent person can blame me for
    standing up for myself. And I really don't care that some few are
    angry from envy, I know that many are appreciative but most are too
    frightened of rejection by their cohorts to openly admit I have helped
    them... you'd be amazed at how many thank me by private email but
    haven't the spine to acknowledge my help in public. Again, thank you,
    Jean.
