Planting for Pie

This year, we are planting for pie in our garden. Peach pie.

Raspberry Pie.

Blueberry Pie.

Rhubarb pie.

Strawberry pie.

We can't wait to have some homegrown pie! But in the meantime, there are frozen wild blueberries. Here is a pie recipe from a package of Wyman's Fresh Frozen Wild Blueberries.

Blueberry Pie
5 cups Wyman's Frozen Wild Blueberries
3/4 cup sugar
2 Tbsp. cornstarch
2 Tbsp. flour
pastry dough for 9" double crust pie
2 Tbsp. strained blueberry juice
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 400 F. Combine dry ingredients and set aside. Place Wild Blueberries in a glass bowl and microwave of high to thaw. Strain thawed berries reserving 2 Tbsp. of juice. Combine dry ingredients and wild berries. Stir until mixture is well blended while adding the strained juice. Pour into a lined 9 inch pie plate. Top with remaining pastry dough and crimp edges. Brush edges and top with cold water. Sprinkle with sugar and vent the top crust. Bake 40-50 minutes or until filling begins to bubble.
