Mix in a large bowl, 7 cups of blueberries (still frozen is okay, and fresh is wonderful), 1 cup white sugar, 4 tablespoons instant tapioca, freshly grated nutmeg (1/8 to 1/4 of a nutmeg), 1/2 of a lemon juice and zest, pinch of salt. Put this berry mixture into a large flat baking dish, no need to butter the dish first.
In the bowl just used, put 1/2 cup flour, 3/4 cup brown sugar, grating of nutmeg, pinch of salt and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon. Cut into this 1/2 cup cold butter, then mix in 1 cup large flake oats. Sprinkle this crumble over top of the berries, and bake at 350 for 1 hour.
