Description

Fresh picked berries are at their peak of sweetness compared to the more tart berries found in the grocery store, so less sugar is needed. Make sure your pie is really bubbling before you pull it from the oven to insure all the juices gel and don’t leave a soupy mess when the pie is cut. If the crust edge is browning too much then cover it with a pie shield or foil.

¼ cup brown sugar
