Blueberry pie – not only is it insanely delicious and a classic recipe fit for the most gilded culinary palate – it’s also made from one of the most healthful items on the planet.
Yes, blueberries are the supreme super-fruit, rich in vitamins and anti-oxidants – please do note that my recipe calls for wild blueberries, not domesticated. They have a superior taste and texture, though smaller than the typical supermarket blueberry. They are available frozen in many supermarkets – try them, the taste difference is truly substantial. FYI – blueberry pie made with wild Maine blueberries is the official state dessert of the proud U.S. state of Maine.
Indulge yourself, citizens – you’ll thank me for it. 😀
My recipe is superior for several reasons – it calls for wild blueberries, it incorporates several citrus zests in the crust for additional taste, and uses both spices and lime juice in the filling to complement the berries.
Enjoy – and prepare for the accolades from your satisfied (and lucky) friends and family! Serve with a scoop of homemade vanilla ice cream for the ultimate experience and know the true taste of Summer, but enjoyed anytime!
