RE: Blueberry pie help needed
Due to holiday time constraints, I was off Roadfood from 11-27-04 until about a week ago, during which apparently a lot of people were snarked about going off-topic. This is a discussion, Hugh, and I hope you will feel free to express your opinion. I surely do!
sunshine, are you in the East Bay? I will TEACH you how to make pie crust. The filling is the easy part, since you want blueberry, not cherry pie. I made rhubarb and cherry pies for my late sister's birthday, and one year she got to my house in time to help both pick and pit the cherries. "As long as you make the crust, I think picking and pitting is fun!" Bless Penny's heart, heaven is a better place for her presence. Crust is all about technique. I wrote out a detailed version of my recipe and technique. Email me if you'd like it.
