I am always looking for ways to use blueberries when they're in season, and this one is a special summer treat! It's old-fashioned comfort food, with the candied ginger adding a sophisticated twist. My family was shocked at how good it was with so little sugar and fat (recipe from Cooking Light). NOTE: I have found candied ginger near the packaged nuts & dried fruits; just ask your grocer if you can't find it. I know they have it at Trader Joes and Whole Foods.
