    I boil a few cups with a little water, a little Splenda and then thicken with cornstarch - great to use over waffles or pancakes, or ice cream or anything else that catches your fancy.

      This is my favorite because of the topping, simple and delicious. I substitute blueberries for the marionberries. Just be sure to add some sugar to the blueberries if they're not really sweet!

      MARIONBERRY CRISP.
      ******************
      This juicy and highly flavored crisp becomes thicker upon cooling. Delicious served with vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt.

      1 cup rolled oats
      1 cup brown sugar
      3/4 cup flour, divided
      1/2 cup butter or margarine
      6 cups Marionberries - fresh, whole frozen or canned

      Preheat oven to 350*. Combine oats, brown sugar and 1/2 cup flour. Cut in butter with pastry blender or two knives until well blended and moist enough to form a ball. Place well drained berries in bottom of 8” X 8” baking dish and toss with remaining 1/4 cup flour. Sprinkle crumb mixture evenly over fruit and bake in 350* oven for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown.

          Our favorite is Blueberry Pound Cake submitted by Suwannee Terry in July of 2007. It is wonderful and makes a big bundt cake. Has some lemon flavoring and lemon rind.
