Recipes I Love: Blueberry Crumble

Here's another quick and easy throw it together dessert for summer.  I guess you could use canned fruit just as easily if blueberries aren't readily available in your neck of the woods.  If it comes to that, you could use your favorite fruit, peaches, raspberries, blackberries, cherries.  It's all good.  
This is the kind of easy and rustic, yet tasty recipe Mischa Blake would have found to serve to Donovan Holloway in my Keeping House book, soon available from Breathless Press.

1/2 cup of white sugar

Be Yourself
