    Blueberries

    I would like your time tested recipes involving blueberries. Not muffins, or pancakes, but something different. I'd like something you've made many times and the whole family loves. Thanks.

    Well, gosh darn. You stumped me!

    Hope you get some great ideas though. I'll be watching, too.

    Here is a link to a recipe that I have used since the 1970's. The cookbook is well used but many of the recipes are now online exactly as they are in the book. I actually stood by while my 14 year old granddaughter made it about a month ago.(She did it all herself!) Blueberry Cobbler. Simple to make, minimal ingredients and fast. I have made it with frozen berries when guests arrive too and I need a quick dessert. Great with a cup of tea.

    My go to Cobbler recipe using any fruit (apple, peach, blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, even pears) is 1:1:1:1

    EASY COBBLER
    1 stick butter in 9x9 square dish
    1 cup self-rising flour
    1 cup sugar
    1 cup milk
    2 cups fruit (sometimes I use 2 1/2 cups)

    Preheat oven to 350. Put butter in 9 x 9 baking dish and melt. Mix flour and sugar together and then stir in milk.Pour over butter. Pour fruit over batter. Sprinkle a little sugar on top of fruit (1/8 - 1/4 cup).
    With peaches, apples and pears, I sometimes sprinkle a little cinnamon on top of fruit also.

    ENJOY!

    This is a well loved family recipe. You can make your own pie filling if you have fresh berries.
    Blueberry Salad

    1 lg box black cherry jello
    1 can blueberry pie filling
    1 can crushed pineapple, 15 oz.
    16 oz container sour cream
    2 8oz pkgs cream cheese
    1/2 cup sugar
    1/2 cup chopped pecans
    Drain pineapple reserving juice. Add enough water to make 2 cups. Bring to boil and dissolve jello. Add one cup cold water, pie filling, and drained pineapple.
    Pour into 9 x13 dish and refrigerate until firm.


    Make topping.
    Cream together cream cheese and sugar, add sour cream, stir to combine.
    Spread on top of berry pineapple mixture
    Sprinkle with chopped nuts.



    Enjoy

    one of our German neighbors made a recipe which is the best thing I ever ate with bluberries. She made a sweet roll recipe and put it into a smaller cake pan. beat up some whipping cream and then some egg whites and sweetened it. Put bluebarries on top of the dough and then the whipped mixture. Bake. You will probably have to experiment with amounts time and temperature but probably same as a cobbler or buckle.

    I have not tried this but I love to make Pillsbury Bake Off recipes. This is an old one from 1954 but it looks delicious. I generally won't make a web recipe unless it's a 4 1/2 to 5 star review. You just can't go wrong with the Bake Off recipes!

    My favorite way to eat blueberries isn't really a recipe. I put blueberries in cream cheese. Yum! They're also great in oatmeal.

    I love blueberries most any way!

    TBH, I love to eat them fresh, just like popcorn!

    Thanks for all the recipe inspirations, as I have a great stash of blues in my freezer
    and am always looking for new ways to use them.



    Would anyone have a Lemon Blueberry Cornmeal Muffin recipe??

    It was a cover photo on a Weight Watchers recipe book from around 2005.
    Made it several times but the book seems to have vanished.
    I am guessing that I loaned it, and it never came home.

    But it does not have to be that recipe ...
    I'll gladly try any with those 3 basic ingredients to see if I can find what I am lusting for!
    Thank you, Everyone!

    We make oatmeal bake. It’s more of a breakfast than a dessert though. I usually use my frozen berries for it. I spread a baking dish generously with frozen B.B. the night before, then early in the am I top the thawed berries with old fashioned oats till baking dish is full. Then I pour in water that has salt and vanilla already mixed in until the mixture is just covered. You can add sugar too if you want a sweeter breakfast. Bake until bubbly on bottom and all water is absorbed. Reheats well. We usually make a big one at the beginning of the week and eat on it all week.

    I just wash and eat them raw or on my cold cereal. I have put them in my salad, apple chunks too.

    Oh my goodness, I have that book on my shelf. I made this so many times when my children were young - while they giggled about the name.
    The only way I like blueberries is in a dump cake.

    Dump Cake
    1 pint fresh blueberries
    1 can cherry pie filling
    1 large can crushed pineapple
    1 white cake mix
    1/2 cup butter
    1/2 cup walnuts

    Mix the first three ingredients in a 9 X 13 glass baking dish. Sprinkle cake mix on top, pour melted butter over the cake mix. Top with walnuts and bake until golden and center isn't gooey - probably 40 minutes.

    Blueberry Onion Sauce for Pork
    This is for 2 servings

    2 Pork chops, with or with out bone
    1 Tbs butter
    1 Medium onion chopped in 1" or smaller pieces, the smaller pieces will cook faster
    Salt and pepper to taste, I leave out because we do low sodium diets
    1 Tbs sugar, I use maybe a tsp as I don't like it too sweet or leave it out altogether
    1/2 Port ot Sherry wine
    2 Tbs balsamic viengar
    1 Cup blueberries washed and dried

    Cook pork until browned and cooked through. Keep warm while you make the sauce.

    Add butter to the pan add onions, salt, pepper and cook until onions are golden stirring occasionally. I usually brown any drippings that may be in the pan before adding onions.

    After onions are brown, sprinkle sugar over them and cook to carmelize them

    Add wine, balsamic vinegar, blueberries.

    At this point, I usually thicken the sauce with a little cornstarch/water so it isn't so watery.

    Place pork on plate, pour any drippings from the dish they were on into the blueberry mixture.

    Pour blueberry mixture over pork and serve.

    This is not a precise recipe. You can add/delete/change ingredients to fit what you like.

    I added a quite a few blueberries to an apple pie this week. It smelled good - I haven't heard from the recipient yet.

    Oh yes it would be delicious!
    Blueberries and raspberries together for a pie are quite tasty too.
