This is an adapted version of Wyman’s Wild Blueberry Pie recipe. And it is Kid Kritic.s Approved, “This is the best pie I’ve ever had!” Choice of berries makes a difference. The soil they are grown in makes a difference. Wyman’s of Maine provides a combination that is hard to beat. The kids could taste the difference and so will you. The amount of sugar used may be reduced as desired. Key to success is the straining of juices after thawing. If you don’t your pie will be too runny.
A pie with a 4/5 Performance rating provides a good treat. These numbers are high because three kinds of berries are used. We encourage this mix so your phyto-nutrients counts are increased. Win over your holiday guests now and during the rest of the year. Replace birthday cakes with pies… better for everyone. They are super yummy, just ask the Kid Kritics!
