Blue Honeysuckle Squares

From Rosehill Agroforestry

Following are a couple of recipes using blue honeysuckle from experimental Russian seedlings that have been winners when samples were consumed at charity functions. These recipes will need to be retested when the “9” series plants start producing fruit. Frozen berries were used in every case.

Blue Honeysuckle Squares

1 cup brown sugar
1 1/4 cups rolled oats
1 1/2 cups flour (all-purpose)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup margarine
3 cups blue honeysuckle berries
3/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
3 tablespoon cornstarch

Combine honeysuckle berries, sugar, cornstarch, and lemon juice. Cook until thickened. Cool slightly. Mix brown sugar, rolled oats, flour, and baking soda. Cut in margarine until crumbly.

Spread half the crumbs in a 9 x 13″ baking pan. Evenly spread berry mixture over top. Top with remaining crumbs. Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes.
