I spent a little over seven years in the Maritimes and had the opportunity to participate in the blueberry harvest a couple of times. One year I asked the farmer if he could pay me my wages for the day in blueberries. He laughed and gave me a lifetime of berries to take home! I shared the berries with friends and neighbours and followed the suggestion of a local Maritimer. She told me to boil the berries with water, nutmeg, sugar and cinnamon and top with my favourite dumpling recipe. So I did! Pulled out Grandma's 1932 Cook Purity Book cookbook and made her recipe for dumplings. I thoroughly enjoyed the combination!
