From A Maine Inspired Meal: Blueberry Schlumpf

September 2013

Blue skies.
Blue waters.
Blueberries!

These are the things of a Maine summer!

Maine boats

While I was breathing in that fresh air and watching boats rock back and forth, my little Julep enjoyed the comforts of home thanks to a puppy-watching pal. As a souvenir of sorts and a way of saying thanks, I made him a Maine inspired meal. To channel the blues of Maine, we ate a bit of dessert for brunch (or lunch depending on your timeframe) with this Blueberry Schlumpf.

Blueberries

As for the name? I guess it’s a Maine thing?

Blueberries and Sugar

As for the taste? It’s a quickly gone sort of thing!
