Home-grown Blueberry Pie and Lemon Ice Cream

August 25th, 2014 · 2 Comments · Posted in Recipes


The blueberries just keep coming. We harvested a big bowl full the other day and my wife turned them into an incredible blueberry pie.

She’s pretty expert at pies. In this case she followed a recipe from Cook’s Illustrated that calls for cooking half the berries ahead on the stove and mashing them. There’s also a Granny Smith apple, grated, in the pie for pectin. It’s further thickened with instant tapioca that she ground to a powder with mortar and pestle.

As if that weren’t enough, she used cream from the local dairy to make the smoothest lemon ice cream you ever tasted. Does this look like the perfect breakfast or what?
