Blueberry Crumble

 How about joining me for some Blueberry Crunch?  I'm just about ready to serve it, but first let's have some iced tea, served in a pretty goblet.  A local French cafe' used to serve their water, iced tea, and soft drinks in pretty goblets, and I always thought that was such a nice idea. 

 This is one of my very favorite dishes, which is Berry Delight, by Mikasa.  Years ago, my late beloved and I stayed in a Bed & Breakfast in Wimberley, TX, and they served their meals on these pretty dishes.  I scoured our Mikasa outlet store when I got home, and found these lovely sets.  The dinner plate just has the same edge as the salad plate, and not the pretty berry motif in the middle. 

 My new favorite tea is this Blackberry Sage, by Republic of Tea.  It's yummy both hot and iced. The back of the container states that "This soothing cup rekindles the spirit.  The first sip produces a soft berry note floating atop the taste of smooth, clean tea.  The next uncovers the head clearing character of white sage with it's wispy coolness dancing at the back of the throat.  An enchanting tea and herb blend."  I'm not sure that I got all that, but I do enjoy it!


Yield: 6 servings

Blueberry Crumble

Be sure to use fresh blueberries in this recipe, as frozen do not work.

INGREDIENTS:


  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 5 cups FRESH blueberries
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, chilled and cut into 6 pieces

INSTRUCTIONS:


  1. Adjust oven rack to the lower-middle position and heat to 375 degrees.
  2. Combine the granulated sugar, cornstarch, and 1/8 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Add the berries and toss to coat. Transfer to an 8" x 8" baking dish.
  3. Process the flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, and remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt in a food processor until combined. Add the butter and pulse until dim-sized clumps form. Transfer the crumble to a bowl and pinch together and powdery parts. This is important to make the clumps of crumble. Sprinkle the crumble evenly over the berries.
  4. Bake until the filling is bubbling around the edges and the topping is golden brown, about 30 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for at least 30 minutes. Once the Blueberry Crumble is fully cooled, it can be wrapped in plastic wrap and refrigerated (the recipe says for up to one day, but I did longer). It also reheats well in the microwave.

  3. Your crumble and tea sound and look delicious Kitty! I had to chuckle at the tea description of "wispy coolness dancing at the back of the throat"...it reminds of wine characteristics that are way beyond my palette. ;) I love your pretty Mikasa plates too!

  4. Your blueberry crumble looks scrumptious, my friend! I love anything with a crumble on top {{smiles}} In fact, on Saturday I whipped up some coffee cake banana muffins. Mmmm....they are so good with the crumble on top! I will share the recipe on my blog in a few weeks.

    Happy Monday to you, friend! Hugs!

  7. I like the idea of serving iced tea in goblets! I don't have a very discriminating palate either and usually miss the "subtle notes" of teas. Hee!

  8. LOL I love how they describe that tea and what a sweet reminder of that special time with your hubby. I was just looking up places around me to go pick blueberries but I fear we are nearing the end of that season except in Michigan. Raspberries are the crop right now so I wonder how this would work with raspberries??

  18. Dear Kitty, your blueberry crumble looks yummy. My man would love it and I just so happen to have a bag of fresh blueberries in the freezer. I may just need to make this for him. I have never tried the blueberry sage tea. I had someone tell me they actually tried making some tea from fresh sage and hated it but I bet that blueberry sage is good! Hope you have a great day. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  20. Kitty, your blueberry crumble looks great! And I love your Mikasa dishes - I've never seen that gorgeous pattern before. I enjoyed your description of the tea. "I'm not sure that I got all that, but I do enjoy it!" Sounds like me! Even if we don't get "all that," we know what we like, and that's what counts.

  21. Definitely a blueberry week! I am always looking for other things with blueberries so saving yours too! Love the dishes, but I am not a blackberry fan...guess I od'd on all the plants we had when I was growing up. They were uncontrollable! Thanks for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea

  28. Dear Kitty:
    What a wonderful dessert and you have one of my favorite teas there too. I drink it a lot and the same one in decaf too. In fact - I have a pitcher made up of iced in the refrigerator right now. I do love Republics teas. I also love the Ginger Peach one. Thanks for sharing your lovely recipe and linking!

  29. This looks so yummy Kitty. I love any kind of crisp or crumble. They're just such a cozy kind of food. I am off caffeine and complaining to myself as I'm not an herbal tea lover. I'm on the search for really good herbal tea that I can enjoy. Most of it doesn't seem to have enough body to it if you know what I mean. So this blackberry sage has me wondering. It sounds very good.
    I'm drinking some hibiscus tea in a goblet (wine glass) right now, and it kind of elevates things, doesn't it?
    Hope you're doing well, sweet friend. xo Deborah

  32. How sweet this is. Crisp or crumbles are so tasty and with fresh fruit, yumm! I bet that tea is divine. Beautiful flowers and your gorgeous waterfall make a nice backdrop. My dad is a little better. His color is improving, but he still is weak. Thank you for asking Kitty.
