After discovering how easy it is to make larabars at home I’ve been on the lookout for dried fruit at the local natural food store. This week I found a favorite, wild blueberries. Unsweetened wild blueberries that is. I couldn’t hold back my excitement.
I didn’t realise until I was writing this blog post that Larabar has a Blueberry muffin Larabar. They must have concluded the same thing I did, that cashews go better with blueberries than almonds. They need a milder flavored nut to bring out the taste.
I did soak my blueberries a little before using them. It makes the product a little more perishable, but the dried wild blueberries were so hard that I was worried that the flavor would be locked into the crunchy bites.

I’m sorry if my posts have been straight to the point lately. I would love to share some of the developments in my life but I don’t want to jinx anything.
What’s your favorite dried fruit? I have some dried mango and papaya that I can’t convince myself to try yet.
