Wild Blueberry Pie

Recipe provided by: The Chanterelle Inn


3 tbsp Cornstarch 45mL
1/8 tsp salt .5mL
1 cup sugar 250mL
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon 2mL
4 cups blueberries 1L
1 cup orange juice 250mL
1 tbsp butter 15mL
  grated zest of 1 orange  
  1 prebaked 9-inch pie shell  


In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, mix all of the dry ingredients together well. Add one cup of blueberries and the orange juice. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until the mixture becomes thick and clear. Add the butter, orange zest and remaining three cups of blueberries. Cool slightly before pouring the mixture into the pie shell.

"Zillions of recipes have been written for blueberry pie, of course. I love this one because only one cup of the berries are cooked; the other three are fresh. The acidity of the orange juice and zest enhances the incredible flavour of the wild bluberries."
