Summertime, and the living is easy…

While I was in New York last weekend, I had the opportunity to go blueberry picking at this gorgeous vineyard and blueberry farm. My friend and I were probably there less than an hour, but we picked about 8 lbs!

I froze most of the blueberries for the winter, when fresh fruit is hard to come by. But some went straight into a pie with a few delicious red raspberries for flavor. The colors were just too pretty when I combined them – just had to snap a few shots with the new camera!

I rarely bake blueberry pie, so I had to look at quite a few recipes to decide how to do the filling. I fell back on an old standard cookbook for me – Moosewood’s Enchanted Broccoli Forest. It called for 3 tbls of flour for four cups of berries, 2 tbls of lemon and 1/4 cup of honey, plus a dash of cinnamon. The pie is still cooling on the stovetop, so I’m not sure how it tastes yet. But it sure looks delicious!

  1. Oh this looks delicious and what fun you had!

  2. (Waving had frantically)….I want a piece, I want a piece!!!!

    The colors are so beautiful…I can taste the freshness through my mind’s eye. It’s breakfast time for me and this really has my mouth watering.

    Off to get a bowl of cereal. NOOOOOOO, I don’t have any fresh berries to put in the bowl 😦
