As a young girl, I developed a love of blueberries from the older women in my family. I looked forward to helping them pick blueberries at the local blueberry farm. We would come home, either to my grandmother's or to our home, with our bounty! While picking I would try to guess whether we would make a pie, a cake, a cobbler, or blueberry dumplings...what fun! Since this recipe was the fastest to make we often would use our berries the first time to make drop dumplings. In addition there was no air conditioning in those days so that was another deciding factor.
