Cherry Blueberry Pie

July 28, 2008

My friend Jacki gave me a large bag of sour cherries on Friday. I was so excited to make a sour cherry pie. However, outdoor work on Saturday prevented me from getting to them until yesterday. Despite being refrigerated since Friday afternoon, most of the cherries had passed their prime. So, I only had 1/4 of the cherries needed for a pie. Luckily we had that bowl of blueberries handy. The remaining blueberries were just enough to fill the rest of the pie. Now we are blueberry-less again, but we had a delicious cherry blueberry pie for dessert last night.*

I used the recipe for a sour cherry pie from a fabulous food blog I just discovered. I made some tweaks like using blueberries to get to the volume of cherries needed and I used a flour that I get from Azure Standard which is an unbleached flour with either the bran or germ left so that it is somewhere between a whole wheat and an unbleached white, but otherwise followed the recipe. I haven’t made a pie other than pumpkin for so long that I can’t even remember the last one I made.

*Shhh, don’t tell that I also had a slice for breakfast. It was so good with a steaming hot cup of strong coffee.

    That looks wonderful! I think the combination would be delicious!

    The combination was okay, texture-wise. They have different textures so I would have preferred an all berry or all cherry pie. The taste was excellent though.
