Wild blueberry Pie
Alain loves anything made with wild blueberries but this pie is his absolute favorite! I was surprised at how many people said they had never made a cooked blueberry pie filling, I’ve never made one that wasn’t cooked!
I particularly like this recipe because it uses flour as a thickener, I sometimes find that pies thickened with a cornstarch slurry get a jello like texture that doesn’t happen with this method, I also like how 2 cups of wild blueberries are held back to give the pie a great texture.
Thanks to our friends at the Wild Blueberry assoc. of Nova Scotia for all of their dedication and hard work!
