happy national blueberry pie day !
i know i said pecan pie was my most favorite pie of all… but blueberry would be a second close. our blueberry crumb pie is all about the piles of blueberries we mound into the crust and then sprinkle with our butter crumbs and bake till nice and bubbly, if it doesn’t bubble, then keep it in longer cause it ain’t done.
here’s an interesting read about the seasonality of this tiny blue fruit. we are always trying to explain that long island climate can’t support growth of blueberries in the colder months. typically, at the local farmers markets, berries aren’t seen past august, september if we are lucky.
