Gardening is something you learn by doing---and by making mistakes....
Like Cooking, Gardening is a constant process of experimentation, repeating the successes and throwing out the failures.

Blueberry Crisp

Blueberry fruit crisp is on of my favorites, so what a great way to use up those frozen berries!

Blueberry Crisp

Oat mixture

2 1/2 cups Rolled Oats (not instant)
1 cup Flour
1 cup Packed Brown Sugar
1/4 tsp Salt
1 cup cold butter

3 cups Fresh or Frozen Blueberries
1/2 cup Sugar
1/3 cup Orange Juice
4 Tbs Cornstarch with 2 tsp water 

Make filling first:
In sauce pan bring blueberries, sugar and orange juice to a boil.
Reduce heat and simmer for about 10 minutes, until blueberries are tender, stirring often.
Add the cornstarch/water mixture and cook for 1 minute longer, stirring constantly until thickened. 
Place berries in a bowl, cover with plastic wrap (directly on berries) and refrigerate for an hour until cooled.

Oat mixture:
In a large bowl combine oats, flour, brown sugar, salt and cut in butter with a pastry knife until mixture is crumbly.
Press half of mixture into a greased 8 inch square baking dish: spread cooled blueberry filling on top, then top with remaining oat lightly.

Ready for the oven

Bake at 350 deg. for 45minutes, until golden brown.  Let cool before cutting.  Serve with ice cream or whip cream.  Enjoy with a nice hot cup of coffee!
