Help please with stove-top berry pie

rworange | Jul 16, 2006 02:16 AM

I am getting the urge to make my one pie of the year. I need the help of all you cooking experts.

I have this wonderful recipe for blueberry pie (scroll to the bottom)

The basic idea is combine fresh blueberries, butter and lemon juice and cook over medium heat until the berries start to release juice.

Add brown and granulated sugar, salt and flour to thicken and cook until thick. Remove from heat and allow to cool.

Now here's the GENIUS part of this recipe. After the mixture has cooled add three cups of fresh blueberries. Pour into a piecrust and let set.

This is SO good. The combination of cooked and uncooked blueberries packs a burst of blueberry in every bite.

I can do this. I do this one thing very well.

Now I want to get creatinve and this is where I need your help.

If this works for blueberries ... why not all berries ... raspberries, blackberries, strawberries ... etc. In fact it is sounding pretty good to give a try with cherries.

BUT ... I don't know. Some of these berries might not work with butter or brown sugar or lemon juice. Maybe some won't work at all.

Do you think this would work with other berries? If so, how would you change the recipe?
