Would you believe me if I told you that it is raining hard again? Yup.. it is.. grin..
This is day 2 of the old fashioned ideas from my old book..
Today the pages seems to have a kind of blueberry theme going on here..
First there is a recipe with a story..
I'm sorry that I did not get a chance to make it though as Terry and I did up chow chow, sweet dills and sandwich pickles plus went to Sussex to buy the cukes.. smile..
Yes, I am a bit tired but thank God for a sweet man who loves to help make pickles..
There is also a bowl of my secret ginger cuke pickle sitting overnite.. grin..
I will need to make these up first thing in the morning..
Anyway, back to my story... smile..
A blueberry recipe for Rustic Blueberry Sauce..
A few years ago I was here at the cottage and went into St. John shopping for groceries.
There were a lot of boxes of blueberries on sale because they had been crushed a bit..
As I stood there looking and trying to decide how many boxes to buy a sweet girl about Shonda's age was putting a few boxes in her cart. I looked at her and she grinned and said she had discovered a new recipe and these would be perfect for it..
Well, you know me..I had to ask her what the recipe was... So, the patient girl stands there as I get her to repeat a few finer points to make sure I had it down pat in my head.. As soon as I could I wrote it down..
Here it is...
RUSTIC BLUEBERRY SAUCE..
3 cups of blueberries
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
2 Tablespoons white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 Tablespoons of water
2 cinnamon sticks..
Bring to a boil and then lower heat and simmer for 8 minutes..
Put in a glass bowl and cover with saran wrap.. Poke holes in the top..
Next day you can use it for waffles, over ice cream or cakes..
They were her suggestions but I freeze this in mason jars and then when I make cheesecake this is the perfect topping..
It is delicious..
You don't have to freeze it but to be honest I don't know how long it would keep in the fridge so I always freeze it..
Hope you enjoy this..
Now here is something I wrote down..
His grace is all sufficient..
Love to you all..
