Blueberry Gelatin Dessert

Pat Duran


This recipe came about because I love blueberries,of course; but because I picked so dang many of these Michigan beauties- when I got to the bushes - there were so many- I just kept picking and picking and before I knew it I had 4 lugs of berries. I made pies for the freezer,I made jam , cobbler, buckle,coffee cake and muffins and this recipe. It turned out beautiful. The berries sank to the bottom, then there was blueberry like jello, and the top was all frothy and it looked so beautiful and tasted wonderful. Every time I make it it turns out different, I can't figure it out- it's like magic. My kids were little then and they loved it- my husband thought it was very good and that I was a kitchen wizard.
