For all you snow weary people out there - THINK SPRING! Have a wonderful day! And help yourself to Brownie's blueberry pie! It's delicious and her recipe is below!
Brownie Schrumpf was a
instutution. She was born Mildred Greeley Brown in Readfield Depot, Maine, attended the University of Maine, served as a home economist and 4-H officer, wrote a column for the Bangor Daily News, and actively promoted Maine procucts at the "Big E" (Eastern States Exposition) every year for the Maine Department of Agriculture. Her friends included political leaders at the State and national level, clergymen, academics, her fellow home economists, neighbors, children, academics, and her readers, who felt as if they knew Brownie like a friend from reading her columns. Her life values remained those she learned on the farm: she was loyal, interested, and always willing to help. When she left the farm to live in the University town of Maine for the rest of her life, the farm went with her and she remained true to the values she learned there. Orono
4 or 5 cups of Wild
Blueberries (fresh or frozen-I use 5 cups) Maine
¾ cup of sugar
2 tablespoons of flour
1 teaspoon butter (broken up and spread around the pie)
Cover with pie top.
In a prepared pie shell add the uncooked blueberries, sugar, flour and butter pieces. Cover the top of the pie with a pie crust. Make slits in the top of the pie to vent.
Bake at 400 for 1 hour.
Blueberry pie puts everything in perspective! LOL!! Enjoy!
