Award Winning Homestyle
This homestyle blueberry cornbread recipe is actually award winning!
Ok, it isn’t like we won a $50,000 recipe contest or anything. That would have been nice , but the recognition was just as rewarding. Voted “Best Blueberry Cornbread” at a local Blueberry Festival, about 500 people and 4 judges were impressed.

The low bush produces the small blueberries that are super flavorful and deep purple in color. The highbush are usually a lot bigger and lack the traditional blueberry flavor, especially when cooked.
Here is how to make it:
