Blueberry Crisp

We recently attended a family gathering and took along this Blueberry Crisp. When you see the ingredients you will likely ask is this healthy? The answer is yes it really is, enjoy.

5 cups fresh blueberries
1 cup sugar plus a half cup for the topping
1 teaspoons fresh ginger minced
2 slices of fresh lemon
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons orange juice
3 cups bread crumbs
3 tablespoons butter melted
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Set the blueberries over medium heat and add in the sugar, ginger and lemon slices. Cook for 20-25 minutes. Next bring the mixture to a boil and combine the cornstarch and orange juice. Add the cornstarch mixture to the boiling blueberries stirring constantly to thicken. Remove from heat and remove the lemon slices and transfer to a 9x9 casserole dish.

Heat the oven to 400 degrees. For the crust combine the remaining sugar, bread crumbs, butter and cinnamon then top the blueberry mixture. Bake until the topping is well browned.
