Blueberry Pie always makes me think of my father-in-law - he had the most gorgeous and kind big blue eyes, and he LOVED blueberry pie! And so when I see a big basket of big fresh blueberries, I always think of him! And I think about how wonderful those berries would taste baked up in a wonderful pie!
Start with some big ole' fresh blueberries - never waste your time with the canned stuff! Big, sweet and fresh blueberries really don't need much extra sugar - and the flavor is sublime!
I have wonderful memories of walking in the woods of Northeast Iowa with my Mom and Aunt Belva picking buckets of blueberries when I was a little girl - and I adored it when my Mom would read "Blueberries For Sal" with me. It's an absolute classic, but when I was little I was certain that there were bears out there when we went on our berry hunts!
My blueberry bushes seem to fall victim to the birds and my little ones - and big ones too, so I'm always lucky to find enough to bake up in a fresh blueberry pie!
Lattice topping is always perfect on a fresh blueberry pie - it allows the blueberries to cook evenly and the blueberry filling that oozes over the sugared crust is so good!
Time to cut a piece of this fresh wonderful pie, and think back to the wonderful people that inspire me to bake! Some of you might want to top this with a nice big scoop of fresh vanilla ice cream, but I'll take mine plain and simple. Hope you'll enjoy a piece with me!
