Simple & Delicious - - RECIPE INDEX -

This recipe was given to me some time ago, and I’ve used it of­ten since. In fact, it’s so good that it won first prize at a county fair. Blue­ber­ries are plen­ti­ful in the Mid­west, and this is a fra­grant and fruity way to en­joy them. —Irene Parry, Kenosha, WI
