Blackberries and blueberries together is really an unexpectedly neo-classic flavor. Really delicious and unique!
Mis en place. Wait! Not so fast. There is a bit of backstory.
The lovely pie plate and server were Channakah gifts from my lovely wife. (Maybe I can convince her to guest-blog again. Hint, hint.)
I'm not sure if I'm more pleased with those items or this giant container of Muscovado she got me.
Being a kosher kitchen, we had to 'tovel' the new items in a (rain-water) mikvah.
In fact, any thing new we buy gets put away (and sometimes forgotten) until we 'tovel' it.
Needless to say, these gifts spurred me to get our act together.
Lulu was with me to learn the trade.
Some of the other 'lost' items. Feels like we went shopping and bought these again, now that we can finally use them!
Coarse-meal? Um, maybe.
The 'bag-method'. I honestly have no idea what I'm doing here as this is about the second real 'pie' I have attempted.
These exact amounts of dough in the recipe did not leave a lot of room for error...
…and of error, there was a good amount.
I should have titled this post -'A patchwork-pie'.
The blueberries were frozen but I could only find fresh blackberries. Lets just say it was an expensive pie.
Here you can see how the top pie crust rolled out. Again, I sort of wished there was just a bit 'more' dough so that you could have a bit more f'ray around the edges' with out affecting the inner circle.
I mixed up some more sugar-cornstarch etc and made some pie-lets with the left over blueberries.
Definitely 'flakey'. The crust was 'flaking' as I took of the tinfoil rim-sheild. It really is a delicious crust.
The Blueberry pie-lets were good too.
What a great flavor.
