Black Raspberry Pie

I am looking forward to summer when during that time of the year, we enjoy many gardens finds.  Black raspberries are even a sweeter find, the bushes are found in the woods behind our house. We enjoy a delicious black raspberry pie.

Black Raspberries are great fresh or frozen.  We make pies, add to fruit desserts, and make jam. My grandmother loved to make black raspberry jam, I will have to share that recipe with you soon.

Black Raspberry bushes are beautiful to look at, but when you are really up close and personal, it is best to wear protective clothing.  I suggest long sleeve shirts and jeans and boots.  It may be warm when it's time to pick the berries, but these bushes have small thorns you need to protect yourself from.

This is a simple 2 crust pie recipe.  You can use your favorite pie recipe, or use the Pillsbury refrigerated pie crust.

In a bowl, combine 4-5 cups of berries, 2/3 cup of sugar, and 4 tablespoons of corn starch. Stir and combine.  Add to the bottom crust and spread out.

Add some sugar on top of the crust before putting in the oven.  It bakes into the crust and creates a delicious flavor.

One of my favorite pie pans is this Anchor Hocking Glass Pie Plate. It is usually my go-to pie plate to use.  I love the little handles on the side.
