Blue States? Red States?

World politics, especially in the USA, is now particularly bitter, with the country divided into “Red States” (conservative) and “Blue States” (liberal).

I would prefer to think about “red fruits” and “blue fruits,” and how good they taste together, so how about a pie of blueberries and cranberries or strawberries, mixing the two and sweetening them so the combination brings smiles to faces rather than frowns? 

This pie also provides an excellent opportunity for pie crust art.

I’m from Massachusetts, home of the cranberry, and of fine strawberries, but also home of a strong political tradition. 

Let’s just say that my Blueberry-Cranberry Pie includes more blueberries than cranberries…you can vary the proportions to suit your taste buds and your politics!

If that’s too political, why not try my Blueberry-Peach Pie? It’s apolitical! Or Bumbleberry Pie, the ultimate E Pluribus Unum!
