Old Fashion Blueberry Grunt


Have you ever heard of Blueberry Grunt? It is a cobbler that you cook on top of the stove instead of in the oven. The reason it was named “Grunt” is because the blueberries make a grunt sound while boiling underneath the steamed biscuits. Old Fashion Blueberry Grunt can even be made on a campfire. All that delicious blueberry mixture soaks into the steamed biscuits that are dropped on top. This is the most delicious & moist blueberry dessert and is cooked in 15 minutes on top of the stove!
