It’s that time of year. Blueberry picking time that is. Which for us tends to stem from a need to make blueberry pie. This year I have been keenly aware of how my pie making tends to go with the season. Strawberry pie is always for Father’s Day. I make a raspberry and blueberry pie topped with homemade whipped cream for Fourth of July. Blueberry Dream Pie for Jason’s end of July birthday, which is where we are at now. Several years ago, the kids and I started the tradition of going blueberry picking and coming home to make birthday blueberry pies. And, since pie is so good…the tradition stuck.
Last week we went with friends and braved the hot hot heat of end of July to pick blueberries. We are super lucky to have a no spray blueberry orchard nearby. We managed to leave with about 15 cups of blueberries, 12 of which went to making our pies.
