Blueberry-Rhubarb Stuff

We scored some rhubarb at the farmers’ market, and we bought some blueberries at the store, so I bunged ’em together with a little less than an equal amount of sugar and made this.

I cooked it low and slow, stirring often, letting the sugar liquify. Then I washed some jars in HOT water and filled them.

As Charlie’s Aunt Ora Mae used to say, now ain’t that perty?

I had a bit left over, which we had on bananananana pancakes, as seen on my Fatal Foodies post this week.

We had company the next day, so I emptied a jar into my Instant Pot, topped it with a cup of white cake mix, topped that with some dollops of vegan margarine, and made dump cake. You turn the Instant Pot to Slow Cook, drape a couple of paper towels over the top, and use a saucepan lid open a crack rather than the Instant Pot lid. Cook it on More for two hours or Less for eight.

It was MOST tasty!

A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Write about something open a crack, or a crack opening in something.

      Look up Dump Cake. I grew up with it, and now it’s all over the place. I don’t know if it was always A Thing, or if it spread from regional cookery. Anyway, there are recipes for cooking it in an Instant Pot, a Crock Pot (slow-cooker), or the oven, which is how we made it when I was a young’un.
