Top Review by susanbc99

I found this recipe in "I've Got a Cook in Kalamazoo", which was originally published in 1978 by the Kalamazoo, MI Junior League. I've been using it for over 30 years. I love it for its ease and its deliciousness (is that a word? :) Peaches are my favorite fruit dessert, so I usually substitute peaches for the blueberries. But, I have made it with blueberries, apples, strawberries, rhubarb, strawberries & rhubarb, cherries, and mixed berries. This is just yummy!
