Black and Blue

Summer is coming to an end. It’s hotter than it has been all summer, and the stone fruits are just not what they were 6 weeks ago. Gone are peach pies and juicy nectarines. Rhubarb is still here, and so are strawberries (aren’t strawberries always here?) and because this is my first summer selling pies and cakes, I have noticed that blueberries and blackberries are coming in strong now. I’ve been selling 1-2 pies per week, which is has been very manageable; so this week I have challenged myself to make and sell one blueberry or blackberry pie per day. So here goes. Let’s the black and blue game begin.
