One of the many reasons that I love Summer is because of the fresh berries. Not only are they packed full of vitamins, antioxidants and fibre, but blueberries also taste delicious and are really convenient when you have small children (they are the best and most nutritious finger food!). Both my three-year-old son and my one-year-old daughter devour them by the handful on most days.
It’s easy to find both organic and conventionally grown berries at most stores right now, but I personally prefer to go to the farmers market and pick up a pint of BC grown blueberries- somehow they just taste better. Maybe it’s because I know that they haven’t travelled too far! We don’t have locally grown berries for very long here in Canada, so I tend to stock up and freeze them near the end of the season to use in smoothies and hot cereal during the winter months. My son also loves eating frozen berries as a snack with a spoon- he calls it “fruit candy” (I won’t complain!).
When I was given the assignment to test out this Blueberry Cobbler Recipe for Canadian Living, I was thrilled at the thought of having a new berry recipe to add to my collection. This recipe called for A LOT of blueberries, so I opted to use a large package of fresh organic blueberries from Costco. It was also a great excuse to use up a package of cornmeal that had been sitting in the pantry for a while.
The cobbler was super easy to throw together and made for a great post-barbecue summer dessert that everyone enjoyed. It wasn’t too sweet at all, which is why the addition of vanilla ice cream was, without a doubt, justified.
I baked the cobbler beforehand, and heated it up right before serving. Everyone loved it!
I got two thumbs up from all of the kids (between the ages of one to four) and most of the adults went back for seconds too. We will definitely be making this delicious summer dessert again soon.
