"While the bluberries were cooking in the crockpot the smell was wonderful. I expected a delicious treat. However after the flour mixture was put on top, everything went downhill. The consistency of the flour mixture wasmushy and hard to spoon. There was also too much of it and it absorbed all of the bluberry liquid. The leftovers were even a doughy mush which heating up did not help. I threw it all away."
