Hello, I stay in India and its very tough to get my hands on blueberries. We do get canned ones in syrup for fillings or toppings either this or dried ones. I wanted to ask which ones are better muffins/cakes. Dried or canned ones. I hardly come across fresh blueberries but when I do they are extremely expensive as they are imported. Im searching for frozen ones but I am unable to find them. So till then which ones are best options for muffins/cakes canned or dried ???

I also think rehydrated, dried berries would work much better than canned berries. I think the canned would add way too much liquid to your recipe, and look like a purple mess! I did not check the link above, but rehydrating in liqueur can be tasty!
