Blueberry Grunt

A grunt is a dessert, traditionally served on America's east coast that is a combination of a pie and a cobbler. It consists of fruit, most often berries, which are cooked beneath a crust of biscuit or dumpling type dough. The Grunt was named for the echo of sounds coming from the bubbling fruit under the dough as it cooks. A Grunt is similar in preparation to the Slump with the exception that the Grunt is steam cooked and the Slump is baked.

Ingredients: Blueberry Grunt

  • 4 c. fresh blueberries
  • 1 c. water
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1 1/2 c. flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 2 tbsp. grated orange peel
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 3/4 c. milk
  • Check through the blueberries for any bad berries and discard. Combine the blueberries, water, and sugar in a medium size skillet. Cook over medium high heat until boiling. Turn heat down and simmer uncovered for 20 minutes.
  • While berries are simmering, combine the flour, baking powder, orange peel, cinnamon, and salt in a bowl and stir to mix evenly.

  • Add the milk and stir just enough to moisten the dry ingredients. The dough will be fairly thick.

  • After the blueberries have simmered for 20 minutes, drop the topping mixture a tablespoonful at a time on top of simmering berries in the skillet.

  • Cover the skillet and cook for 15 minutes or until the dumplings are done. Do not remove the cover during the cooking time.

  • When the grunt is done, spoon it out of the skillet on to a plate, serving while it is still warm.
