I buy organic blueberries which come in a little plastic container. I like to wash them and put them in a tupperware container. After I wash them I place them between some paper towels to let them dry, but they take forever to dry this way.

Is there a better way to this?

If your concern is to avoid storing them wet, you can actually wait to wash them until you're about to use them. – JustRightMenus Aug 5 '10 at 0:15
Good point, but not always possible -- if I'm packing someone's lunch, for example. – Rob Sobers Aug 10 '10 at 21:29

That's the same method I would use.

If you have a salad spinner you could try giving them a gentle spin in there first. They are sturdy enough (unless they're over-ripe) that they should handle a gentle pass through it.
