Pie!

I love my blueberry star pie! This was for yesterday–Memorial Day–but I started putting the stars on berry pies because of the kitchen in my old house that was cobolt blue and golden yellow with stars, suns and moons. Then, I kept doing it because I had a friend who really liked stars and now, it just doesn’t seem right to have a berry pie without stars on it!

Blueberry PieWhile this wasn’t the tastiest of the blueberry pies I’ve made, it was pretty. Something I need to try to locate is blueberry liquer because that might be an interesting thing to try.

The blueberries were frozen–a gift from a visitor–and weren’t as flavorful as I’ve used before. I didn’t taste them before I froze them because if I had, I might have just used them right then to utilize what flavor they did have. By this time, it was really too late. Oh well!

Next time I make the pie, which I’m sure will be sometime when I get more blueberries, I’ll post the recipe. Hoping there will be some at the farmer’s market this year when the season is right.

I’m sad to say that I STILL haven’t been to the farmer’s market yet and won’t get to again this weekend. 😦 Oh well, thankfully Summer hasn’t officially started yet!

Blueberry Candy

A parishioner gave me fresh blueberries from her garden. I washed them in preparation to freeze them for use in a pie later on because it is too hot and time is too short at the mome

nt. But I couldn’t resist eating a handful of them right out of the strainer. They were soooo good that it was like eating blueberry candy.
