  • 3 cups frozen Wild Blueberries
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter or soft margarine or shortening
  • 1/3-1/2 cup low-fat milk
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon if desired


Combine Wild Blueberries with sugar and water in a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until berries are soft and begin to thicken, about 5 minutes. Mix flour, baking powder, sugar and salt together. Cut in butter. Gradually stir in enough milk to make a soft dough. Drop the batter by tablespoons on top of the simmering berry sauce. Immediately cover saucepan and cook over low-medium heat 15-18 minutes. Old Fashioned Wild Blueberry Grunt serves 4 to 6.
