My daughter Karissa and I went blueberry picking at a blueberry farm in our area last week. We both picked a large pail of blueberries and I have been eating them like crazy. While picking them I must have eaten a pound of them. They were so delicious and fresh tasting! There's nothing like fresh picked fruit for a snack and blueberries are so good for a person too.
Karissa likes to bake (and cook) so she and I made a couple of pies. I froze a couple of large bags of the blueberries for this winter when it's snowing!
Here is the recipe for the blueberry pie:
Prepare pastry for a 2 crust 9 inch pie. Combine 4 cups fresh blueberries with 3/4 to 1 cup sugar, 3 tbsp. all purpose flour, 1/2 tsp. grated lemon peel, 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon and a dash of salt.
Line a 9 inch pie plate with pastry. Fill. Sprinkle with 1 tsp. lemon juice; dot with 1 tbsp. butter. Arrange lattice crust on top of pie. Seal. Bake at 375 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm if desired.
