Bonus Recipe: Blueberry Grunt
1-1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
3/4 cup measurable sweetener
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon grated orange rind
4 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
1 cup all-purpose flour
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/3 cup measurable sweetener (or eight packets)
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons cold margarine, cut into pieces
1/2 cup skim milk
1/2 teaspoon grated orange rind
Mix cornstarch, 3/4-cup sweetener, water, lemon juice, and 1-teaspoon grated orange rind in 8-inch skillet. Add blueberries and heat to boiling. Boil, stirring constantly, until mixture is thickened, one minute. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, five minutes.
Combine flour, baking powder, remaining sweetener, spices, and salt in medium bowl; cut in margarine with pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in milk, forming soft dough; stir in 1/2-teaspoon orange rind. Spoon dough in six mounds on simmering blueberry mixture. Cook, covered, on low heat until dumplings are done, 12 to 14 minutes. Serve warm.
