While blueberries are best eaten fresh, few people can resist the allure of a blueberry pie. This one delivers all the taste with half the work, so it’s perfect for a beginner baker or time-pressed pastry pro.
Fresh Versus Frozen
* You can use either fresh or frozen berries in most pie, cake, quick-bread and sauce recipes.
* Don’t thaw frozen blueberries. Stir frozen into dough or batter. Use a light hand – berry juices can turn batter a dull grey.
* To freeze fresh blueberries, rinse, pat dry and spread out on a tray in a single layer. Place in the freezer. Once frozen, seal in plastic bags up to 9 months.
