    Pastryismybiz's Note:

    I love the the texture and flavor this technique produces in making blueberry filling. If you are tired of the overly processed and overly cornstarched taste of blueberry pie filling, give this a try. Method produces a "fresh blueberry" taste.

      Absolutley perfect!! I doubled the berries, sugar, and cornstarch/water to make it thicker to use as a filling for a cake. Then added the blueberries and it worked amazingly. Its a little sweet with all the sugar. To speed up the liquid process in the begining add a tablespoon of water to the sugar and berries. Tastes wonderful without the spices as well.

      Yummy and easy. Not too gloppy, full of blueberries, just the right amount of sugar. Didn't use this in a pie, but made to go with They Won't Know It's Not Cream Cheese Cheesecake and enjoyed it quite a lot. Next time I'd leave out the nutmeg, just my personal preference. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
