Here in western Pennsylvania, we always have an abundance of juicy, delicious blueberries in the summertime. I like to use them most often in this old-fashioned dessert. It's my family's favorite - and mine, too, since it's tasty as well as easy to make. I always freeze some berries with this recipe in mind.
A peachy use of the season's bounty is Marilyn Schroeder's fruitful dessert. "I bring this juicy crumble to get-togethers of all kinds," she writes from Alexandria, Minnesota. "Crushed macaroons make a delightfully different topping for the blueberries and nectarines. For a special treat, serve it with low-fat frozen yogurt."
Cornbread, blueberries and maple syrup butter give this special dessert a taste that’s different from any cobbler you’ve had before. I came across the recipe many years ago. —Judy Watson, Tipton, Indiana
The name may make you smile—and the flavor of this stovetop treat is guaranteed to have the same effect. Make this traditional dessert in a skillet with a tight-fitting lid, and you’ll hear it “grunt” as it cooks! —Iola Egle, Bella Vista, Arkansas
As a child, I was reared on a small farm in southeast Georgia, and tobacco was our main crop. Now blueberries are the main crop in our small town, which has a blueberry festival each year. This recipe was the winner in 2008! —Evelyn Dunlap, Nicolls, Georgia
