Fresh Blackberries: It’s PIE season!
June 17, 2014
Pop quiz: What do you do when you're swimming in backyard blackberries?
DUH: Make pie!
Now, I'm not a big sweets fan, but I love fresh fruit and it seemed a crime not to do at least a bit of baking with these fantastic fresh blackberries. My bees worked so hard pollenating the heck out of the bushes this year...so I bake in honor of them!
I prefer simple pies...no thickeners or any other junk added. Just a simple homemade butter crust, berries, sugar.
It turned out so good that I think I may just have to make another one. Happy Summer!
