Our Famous Blueberry Muffin Recipe - The Best Around!

It was about 30 years ago in 1984 when this muffin recipe first came to our farm.  It was a busy day on the farm and it was pretty normal to see families taking a break in our picnic area that we provided. Well,  I (Shiela) decided to take a break from the shed one day and wandered out to the picnic area and visit with some customers. This family was here picking all the way from Chicago and this nice lady offered me a blueberry muffin which I of course gladly accepted. Well, history of the blueberry muffin at our farm was born.  I ran to share this with my mom, Alice Eenigenburg, and told her how good it was and she just said, "Well did you get the recipe?" The kind customer of course shared her family muffin recipe with us and it has been our favorite for 30 years. We hope whoever uses it will enjoy it as much as us and all the credit goes to one of our great customers years ago - Mrs. A. Kueovitz.  Thank you to her and her family for sharing it with us.

FRESH BLUEBERRY PIE

By Pat Tysen,
daughter of Ernie & Alice Eenigenburg

1 cup sugar
3 heaping tbsp. cornstarch
½ tsp. Ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp. salt
1 cup water
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
1 tbsp. Lemon juice
3 cups fresh blueberries
1 baked 8 or 9 inch pie shell

· Combine sugar, cinnamon, salt, and 1 cup of fresh or frozen berries with 2/3rds of the water. Put in microwave until boiling (single recipe about 3 minutes)
· Add cornstarch mixed in remainder of the water (1/3rd)
· Cook (microwave) until thickened and clear (about 1 minute)
· Add Lemon juice, stir well to mix and cool slightly
· Add 3 cups of fresh berries and gently transfer the filling to the prepared pie shell
· Top with cool whip, whipped cream or ice cream

NOTE: If you double the recipe the cooking time doubles (or more)! I use a pre-made crust (the ones rolled up in the refrigerator section) and do the cooking in the microwave! Easy, and everyone loves it!!
