I'm sure you may wonder, "Why in the world would anyone go to that much trouble for tiny little black berries!"
It's my grandmother's fault really. When I was young I remember her lovingly trying to teach me how to 'flute' the crust of a pie. When the lesson was done, the pie baked and cooled, I got to eat my just desserts. At the time, I didn't really know what blackberries were and I certainly hadn't developed a taste for them yet. In fact, I really thought the pie was kinda 'gross' with all those seeds!
Time has a way of changing our taste buds when we least expect it and now 50 plus years later, I find that my mouth waters with the thought of a blackberry pie in the oven.
Looks yummy doesn't it!
Guess what.....it is!!!!
Stay tuned.....next blog post, my blackberry pie recipe
