Basic Blueberry Pie


Both the Chosa’s of Azul Dolce and Jeff and Don of J & D Blueberry Farm have bumper crops of blueberries right now, so buy some for now and some to freeze to make this Basic Blueberry Pie Filling year-round. Feeling ambitious? Fore-go the pre-made crust, and use this pie dough recipe from Nate ‘Nola Pie Guy’ Winner to make the perfect blueberry pie!

Ingredients

  • 4 cups blueberries
  • 1/2 cup sugar (or more if desired)
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice

Directions

In a medium saucepan, combine blueberries, sugar, cornstarch, butter, and lemon juice. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved. Bring to a boil over medium heat, then reduce heat and simmer until mixture thickens. Be sure to keep stirring until mixture reaches desired consistency. Cool filling before pouring into a baked pie crust.

Makes filling for 1 9-inch pie
