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. Commented Aug 5, 2010 at 0:15
  • Good point, but not always possible -- if I'm packing someone's lunch, for example.

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.
