Blueberries, Blueberries, Blueberries
I adore blueberries, eaten raw or baked in classic american fruit desserts. I've been doing a lot with them lately. Here is a Peach-blueberry galette - like a free-form pie, from Baking with Julia, a very good recipe. Also, I made a blueberry-lemon-cornmeal cake from this month's issue of Fine Cooking. This one has gotten raves on the Fine Cooking web site. It has some cornmeal and buttermilk in it which is nice against the sweet blueberries. It is not too sweet. I had a piece for breakfast this morning. Also I made a peach-blueberry pie. I like a little peach in my blueberry pies, it keeps the pie from being too cloyingly sweet.
