Fresh fruit and berries abound! You want pies that take advantage of this bounty and let the wonderful tastes of summer come through.
just the thing to bring the Blue and Red together on the 4th of July!
Blueberry-Cranberry Pie: just the thing to bring the Blue and Red together on the 4th of July!
Here are my favorite pies for summer:
Nothing is better than the sweet juiciness of a fresh strawberry. This pie uses both fresh and cooked berries and is delicious.
When I can get both fresh strawberries and fresh rhubarb from my local farm stand, nothing can stop me from making a yummy Strawberry Rhubarb Pie!
Catch the end of the strawberries and the beginning of the blueberries and make this colorful pie for July 4th!
One of the easiest (nothing to chop or peel) and best of summer.
This pie copies the Strawberry Pie recipe, using both cooked and fresh berries. A summer delight.
A delicious combination, with the tart rhubarb somehow bringing out the flavor of the blue berries.
Okay, I know the cranberries aren't yet in season, but the blueberries are, and frozen cranberries can make this possible for a nice change in summer.
This is one of my favorite combinations, most delicious in the summer toward the end of blueberry season and the beginning of peach. Yum!
Pitting cherries takes a bit of time but is worth the effort!
Although it's not really a pie, it's close enough, and made with fresh cherries is both traditional and delicious.
Nothing can beat a fresh baked Peach Pie, just a simple pie that focuses totally on the fruit.
You might find some late strawberries and make this gem. The strawberries add a tanginess that complements the peaches.
Fresh local raspberries mean that it's time to bake this delicious pie, again using a combination of fresh and cooked fruit.
Take advantage of the range of berries available and make this ever-changing treat, with blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, and/or huckleberries.
We don't get fresh mangos too often, but they sure make a good and unusual pie!
