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!
