<Oops, this was supposed to be about the muffins we made from @sarahm's blueberry bonanza. Look for that scintillating update in a couple of days.>
We eat blueberries for breakfast, snack, in smoothies, in pancakes. I can't remember how or why Bama got stuck on the idea of making a blueberry tort, but she wouldn't budge. A pie? No. Muffins? Not today, thanks. We watched videos, primarily from Martha Stewart, and the girl saw tart and was settled. "You know what, Mama? This was a very good video," she said. "He was very clear with his instructions. I like how he folded the blueberries in." It's true, it is a very good video. We also watched Martha Stewart make a pie, a pastrami sandwich and potato salad, and a few other dishes. She commented on some aspect, generally related to technique, in each of them. We watched the tart video about a half dozen times.
We carefully poured our sandy dough into the springform. (Sidebar: when Mister and I packed us to move to NY, we left behind our tart pan but brought four bread loaf pans, four 8" circulars, three spring forms, a semi-rusty muffin tin that was my grandmother's and is now recycled or landfill, and three whisks. But no tart pan. I thought about hacking a tart pan,but decided against it because we were pressing in our dough not rolling it out.)
I think she did an incredible job getting the dough neatly around the pan. I finished it up for evenness, but in general, Bama did the work.
She sorted the blueberries, pulling out the odd one and destemming the vagrants.
