Oops! on that blueberry recipe

Our Down Home Cook, Diann Greene, emailed this morning to alert us that an ingredient had been dropped from her Blueberry Crisp recipe in today's Herald.

The topping ingredients should include 2/3 cup all-purpose flour. We fixed the problem online here, and will run a correction Thursday on 2A of our print edition.

We apologize for the mistake, fully aware that a few folks probably will test the recipe, sans flour, and not achieve the desired results.

That reminds me of a recipe mistake published years ago that prompted a reader's letter. It went something like this:

"I thoroughly enjoyed your recipe for pan-fried flounder, but found it difficult to keep the fish from jumping out of the skillet. Is it possible that the recipe called for 1/8 teaspoon of pepper, instead of the 8 teaspoons listed in the paper?

We appreciate how many cooks we have out there testing our recipes, and realize that even a dropped character can spoil an entire meal.

Sorry, and we'll try to be better.
