So I am going to the uvScene potluck tonight and decided to make something delicious. I used my awesome baking skillz and combined them with the power of local blueberries as well as a little bit of New England culinary power and VOILA — the Blueberry Grunt.

Grunts are traditionally made completely on the stove top like chicken and dumplings, but this recipe (adapted from AB’s Black berry Grunt recipe, needed a little bit of browning on the top. I haven’t tried it yet but it looks good! Yum-o!

    It looks delicious. What is the uvScene?

    I made an apple pie last night. My pie crust was successful even though I realized – right when I was balling up the dough on the counter top – that Rebecca had taken our rolling pin. So i just kind of patted the dough out flat and used the side of a pot to roll it out thin.

    Whatever. It worked!

    the uvScene is a local group that organizes the cultural happenings for the area…check the website and see what I mean. It’s cool!

    Also, you can always use the poor man’s rolling pin: a wine bottle

    The grunt was delicious! (I got to scoop out a bit before he took it to the potluck.) The best part was that it turned our teeth dark. We looked like hillbillies!

    A wine bottle!!!!! My ingenuity was lost on me last night. I have tons of wine bottles lying around.

    your ingenuity must have been lost in one of those bottles of wine LOL

    The grunt was delicious. I had forgotten about AB’s grunt recipe. Have you tried Cook’s master recipe? I’m tempted to experiment a little with the biscuit texture but your grunt was right on for flavor. 😉

    I haven’t tried the Cook’s master recipe, but I’m game for anything. This was my first attempt at drop biscuits in a grunt/dumpling style so I still have to practice.
