It’s blueberry month in the U.S and time to gobble up all that goodness in the best way possible.
Blueberries are amazing topped on ice cream, blended into a smoothie, or just on their own in a bowl. One the best, time-honored ways to enjoy this gift from nature though, is to pack them juicily into a pie.
Who has the best? It could be you. Check out this list of 3 award-winning blueberry pie recipes:
Mary is a retired postal worker from New England with a passion for wowing the judges via the perfect blueberry pie. Tips: use frozen berries, she says. They make a better pie than fresh ones.
She’s been winning contests for years, so listen to her. Her creation is described on newengland.com like this:
“It’s hard to wait for the pie to cool, but when it does, it’s juicy, not runny, the berries sweet (yet just a bit tart), the crust flaky and light: everything a blueberry pie should be.”
Tasteofhome.com feels that Linda’s pie is one of the best out there. It’s a blue berry pie without a top crust, that serves 8. If you’re hungry for some fruit, this is it.
