Traditional Newfoundland Old Fashioned Blueberry Pudding Recipe

3 cups fresh blueberries
1/3 cup cold water
1 teaspoon gelatin
1/4 cup boiling water
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon lemon juice
7 thin slices bread
1/2 cup melted butter

Place blueberries in a saucepan with cold water and cook for 5 minutes or until berries are tender. Remove from the stove. Soften gelatin in 1/4 cup of juice from the cooked blueberries; let stand for 5 minutes. Add boiling water to dissolve the gelatin. Combine blueberries and juice, dissolved gelatin, sugar and lemon juice. Remove crusts from bread. Brush both sides of each slice generously with melted butter.

Cover bottom and sides of a one-quart dish with buttered bread, cutting slices to make a neat effect. Cut remaining bread into small squares. Pour 1/3 of the blueberry mixture into the bread lined dish; top with squares of bread. Add two more layers each of blueberries and bread. Cool all day and serve with whipped or sour cream.
