Leslie in Texas's Note:
This is from a June 2001 food section article from the Houston Chronicle. The article featured blueberries and this recipe comes from The King's Orchard, site of the annual Texas Renaissance Festival in Plantersville, Texas. At the King's Orchard, you pick your own fresh fruit in season.
