Veteran gardener, and former Field & Feast guest,  Judy Barrett is a sought after for her gardening and plant knowledge, and has written several books filled with a lifetime of learning from which fellows gardeners may benefit.

One of her books,  published through Texas A & M Press, Recipes From and For the Garden, is a charming volume and offers readers more than a hundred simple recipes for using, enjoying, and enhancing the bounty of their gardens.

The recipes are easy; some are old family favorites. Judy even borrows from others cooks and gardeners she admires, and encourages home gardening (and creating from the garden) for everyone.

You can also visit her blog and website called Judy Barrett’s Homegrown.

The following recipe comes from her book, and is for Blueberry Crunch.

Blueberries require pollination to set fruit, and the best insects for that are native bumblebees and solitary bees. If you add a bee nesting block to your garden, you will ensure that your blueberry bushes will provide you with an abundance of delicious fruit.

Serves 6 – 8

Ingredients

  • 4 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cups uncooked oats
  • 1/2 cup (on stick) butter or margarine, melted

Directions

  1. Place the blueberries in a 2-quart baking dish; spread them evenly.
  2. Combine remaining ingredients and sprinkle over the berries.
  3. Bake for 45 minutes in a preheated 350°F oven.
  4. Serve warm or cool, with cream, or ice cream, or plain.
