Wild Blueberry Pie
Recipe provided by: The Chanterelle Inn
|1/2 tsp||ground cinnamon||2mL|
|1 cup||orange juice||250mL|
|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."
