Eating seasonally – through pie: Blueberry

Blueberry pie - blondewalk

Blueberry pie is one of our all time favourites, and we can always look forward to Grandma Verna making this pie several times throughout the summer. It was such treat for us to make this pie with Grandma and feature it in our kitchen series as well. This pie screams summer, and was perfect for a Canada day celebration. The biggest surprise for us was the enhanced flavor of the blueberries thanks to lemon juice and zest! What a transformation. Paired with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, this is a perfect ending to any meal. »
