Ozark Wild Blueberry Pie

Calling this recipe a blueberry pie recipe is doing it a disservice as it requires the addition of cranberries and oranges, which to my knowledge are not associated with the Ozarks.

Ingredients

  • 1 16 ounce can whole berry cranberry sauce
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated orange peel
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • Crust
  • 2 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mace
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 6 tablespoons ice water
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl combine first eight filling ingredients. Stir in blueberries; set aside. If for crust, combine flour, sugar and mace in another bowl. Cut in shortening until mixture is pea-size chunks.
  2. Add ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time, and toss lightly with a fork until dough forms a ball. Divide dough in half. On a floured surface and using a floured rolling pin, roll to a 10 inch circle. Place into 9 inch pie pan. Spoon filling into crust; dot with butter.
  3. Roll second half of dough to fit top of pie moisten edge of bottom crust; place top crust over. Firm and under bottom crust; flute with fingers. Beat egg with water; brush over crust. Cut slits in top. Bake at 425° F 218 C for 40 minutes or until golden brown.

Can You Plant Wild Blueberries

It is nearly impossible to have success in planting wild blueberries. The roots are very susceptible to shock and the plant itself spreads underground by means of rhizomes.
