Healthy Mixed Berry Cobbler
3  Cups Mixed Berries or any Fruit, Fresh or Frozen (frozen Blueberries)
¼ Cups Plus 1 Tbsp. Whole Wheat Flour
½ Cups Honey, Divided
½ Cups Rolled Oats
¼ Cups Chopped Walnuts
1  Tsp. Cinnamon
½ Tsp. Ginger
¼ Tsp. Nutmeg
1  Tsp. Canola Oil

Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray an 8″ x 8″ baking pan with cooking spray and set aside. In a large bowl, toss fruit and 1 Tbsp. flour together. Add ¼ Cup honey (reserve the remaining ¼ Cup of honey for topping) and use your fingers to thoroughly combine ingredients. If using frozen berries, the honey may cause them to bunch together, so you’ll have to pick them apart by hand. Pour fruit mixture into the baking pan.

In a medium bowl, mix remaining flour, oats, walnuts, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg until combined. Add remaining honey and canola oil. Use your fingers to thoroughly combine the ingredients. Sprinkle the flour and oat mixture evenly over the fruit.

Bake for 40 to 45 minutes until fruit is bubbly and the topping is browned and crisp. Let cool for 20 minutes. Serve plain or top each serving with vanilla yogurt.

Blueberry Bread Pudding with Streusel Topping
4 Cups Cubed French Bread (1 Inch Cubes)
1 Cup Lemon Curd or Pie Filling
1 to 1 ½ Cups fresh or frozen Blueberries
1 Tbsp. Vanilla Extract
1 Cup Sugar
4 Beaten Eggs
1 Cup Milk
1 ¼ Cup Whipping Cream
1 Tsp. Lemon Zest

Streusel Topping
2 Tbsp. Melted Butter
¼ Cup All Purpose Flour
¼ Cup Firmly Packed Brown Sugar
¼ Cup Chopped Pecans

Vanilla Sauce
1 Small Box Instant Vanilla Pudding Mix
3 to 3 ½ Cups Whole Milk or Cream


Bread Pudding: In a large bowl beat together eggs, curd, milk, cream, sugar, vanilla, and lemon zest.  In an ungreased 2 quart baking dish, toss together the bread and blueberries.  Pour egg mixture evenly over the bread mixture.  Press mixture lightly with the back of a large spoon so all the bread is soaking up the egg/milk mixture.  You do not want any “dry” bread. 


Bake uncovered in a 350 degree oven for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool slightly.  Serve with ice cream or vanilla sauce.


Streusel Topping (optional): In a small bowl mix all ingredients until crumbly.  Sprinkle over top of bread mixture.


Vanilla Sauce (optional): Stir all ingredients together in a medium bowl.  Add 3 Cups of milk/cream first, then if needed add the remaining ½ Cup.  The sauce should be smooth and thin.


Blueberry Sauce
2  Cups fresh or frozen Blueberries
¼ Cup Water
1  Cup Orange Juice
¾ Cup White Sugar
¼ Cup Cold Water
3  Tbsp. Cornstarch
½ Tsp. Almond Extract

In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the blueberries, ¼ Cup of water, orange juice, and sugar. Stir gently, and bring to a boil.

In a Cup or small bowl, mix together the cornstarch and ¼ Cup cold water. Gently stir the cornstarch mixture into the blueberries so as not to mash the berries. Simmer gently until thick enough to coat the back of a metal spoon, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the almond extract and cinnamon. Thin sauce with water if it is too thick for your liking. Makes about 8 servings.

1 Package Instant Vanilla Pudding Mix
2 Cups Milk
1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, softened
1 (6oz.) container vanilla yogurt
1 -10 ¾oz. frozen loaf pound cake, thawed and cubed (¾  -inch cubes)
6 Cups Strawberries, quartered
2 Cups Fresh Blueberries and Raspberries
1 Recipe of Berry Sauce

Berry Sauce
2 Cups Fresh or Frozen (thawed) Strawberries or Raspberries
2 - 3 Tbsp. Sugar
1 Tbsp. Raspberry Liquor, Rum, or Orange juice

Prepare pudding mix according to package directions using the milk; set aside. In a large mixing bowl beat cream cheese and yogurt with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth; stir in pudding.

Cover and chill 4 to 24 hours. Spoon Berry Sauce onto individual serving plates; top with trifle. Makes 8 to 10 servings.

To Make Berry Sauce: In a food processor, combine fresh or frozen (thawed) strawberries or raspberries, sugar, and raspberry liqueur, rum, or orange juice. Cover and blend or process until smooth.

Blueberry Frozen Yogurt
3 Cups frozen Blueberries (about 1.1lb)
3 Tbsp. Lemon Juice
¾ Cup to 1 Cup of Sugar (depending on how sweet your blueberries are, and how sweet you want the result to be)
¼ Tsp. Salt
⅛ Tsp. Cinnamon

1 ½ Cups full fat plain yogurt (full fat yogurt is preferred, if you use low-fat or non-fat yogurt, substitute ¼ Cup of it with heavy whipping cream)
½ Cup Whole Milk


Place the blueberries, lemon juice, sugar, salt, and cinnamon in a medium saucepan. Heat on medium heat, stirring until all of the sugar has dissolved. While the mixture is heating, use a potato masher to mash up the blueberries. When all of the sugar has dissolved, remove from heat and let cool for 10 minutes. If you want a smooth result, you can process the cooled mixture in a food processor, or skip, in which case you'll have pieces of blueberries which can add flavorful texture to the frozen yogurt.


Stir in the yogurt and milk until completely incorporated. Chill the mixture in the refrigerator for several hours (or overnight) until completely cold. Process the blueberry yogurt mixture in your ice cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions (usually about 25 minutes). Serve immediately (it will be soft) or let it firm up a bit by freezing it for several hours. Makes about 1 quart.

Blueberry Pasta Salad
2 Boxes Spiral Pasta
4 lbs of fresh Blueberries
3 bottles of Blueberry Vinaigrette
3 Qts. of Strawberries
1 lb Finely Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
Cook pasta and let cool. While pasta is cooling, chop strawberries and wash remaining fruit. Combine fruit with pasta, lightly folding with a spatula. Add two bottles of Blueberry Vinaigrette. Continue folding salad. Now add mozzarella cheese and remaining bottle of Blueberry Vinaigrette. Chill for several hours before serving. For best results; let sit over night. Makes 1 Large Bowl

*It may be necessary to use more or less of the vinaigrette depending on the amount the pasta absorbs. The ingredient ratios for this salad were dependant on preference and consistency. The cheese should be sprinkled lightly throughout the salad. There should be more blueberries than strawberries


Blueberry Potato Soup
5lbs Potatoes
½ Cup Celery, chopped
½ Cup Onion, chopped
2 Tbsp. Margarine or Butter
1.5 Cup Milk
1 pkg. The Blueberry Store’s Blueberry Sausage
1-2 pints fresh or frozen Blueberries
Salt & Pepper to Taste


Peel and dice the potatoes.  Place potatoes in a large pot with water, and bring to a boil until potatoes are partially cooked.  Add Milk, Margarine/Butter, Celery, and Onions; let simmer for approximately 5 minutes.  

While soup is simmering, remove the sausage from its casing.  Cut the sausage into pieces and warm in a pan.  The sausage is precooked, so be careful not to burn it.  Once the sausage has been warmed through; add to pot with other ingredients.  Simmer for approximately 5 minutes. 


Add the Fresh/Frozen Blueberries.  Put the Blueberries in by the handful; make a judgment call as to the amount that the soup will actually need, as it may need more or less.  Be sure to fold the soup when stirring.  This will allow for the berries to remain whole, before the heat begins to break them down.   Add Salt & Pepper to taste.  When adding any of the ingredients to the soup, especially the milk, evaluate how much will be needed to make the soup balance. 

*May add mashed potato flakes to thicken to desired consistency. Serves 6-8.

Cup fresh or frozen and thawed Blueberries
1 Tbsp. Balsamic Vinegar
2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
1 Tsp. Worcestershire Sauce
2 Cloves Garlic, minced

Add ground beef and mix well with a potato masher. Divide the mixture into four equal portions; form into 1/2-inch-thick patties, about 4 inches in diameter. Meanwhile, preheat broiler or heat an indoor or outdoor grill to medium-high. If using the broiler, coat a broiler pan with cooking spray. If using a grill, oil the grill rack by rubbing it with an oil-soaked paper towel. Cook patties until browned and no longer pink in the center, 4 to 5 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted in the center should register 160 degrees F. Serve immediately, with or without rolls and toppings.
