  • 1 quart blueberries (wild are best)
  • 1/2 cup sugar or more
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Boil berries, water and sugar in a pan until there is plenty of juice.
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp butter


Sift  dry ingredients together.  Cut in 1 tbsp butter until mixture is crumbly then add enough milk to make a soft dough (like biscuit dough).  Drop by tbsp over berries, cover tightly and cook for 15 minutes.  DO NOT lift the lid until time is up.  After 15 minutes are up immediately lift the lid, cool, and serve. 

We had a request for a Grunt recipe and here it is. This is an old recipe passed down from generations and enjoyed by many family members.  Hope you enjoy it--we know you'll eat till you "Grunt".
