Winter blues

Take one cold snowy day. Add 1/2 cup of sugar, 1/2 cup water and 4 cups of frozen blueberries.

Put them on to boil. Then measure two cups of flour, 4 tsps baking powder, 1/2tsp salt, 1 teaspoon sugar and cut into it 2 tablespoons of butter. Then add 1/2 cup of cold milk. Mix to make a biscuit dough. Drop spoonfuls on top of blueberries. Cover and cook for 15 minutes. No peeking.

And ta dah! Blueberry Grunt.

Recipe from Out of Old Nova Scotia Kitchens:) Got it for Christmas. I added a pinch of cinnamon and some orange zest. mmmm. Great antidote for a winter day.

Your photographs are gorgeous. i still remember the first time I had blueberry grunt, I had my misgivings as I sat in the loud and boisterous kitchen of my best friend's grandmother. My home was quiet and rather unassuming and I'd never heard of the biscuity, blueberry mess in the bowl in my hands. Until I had a bite. Ten years later I married that boy and I still harbour a secret love for blueberry grunt. Thank you for sharing it.
