Blueberry Rhubarb Pie

Posted in : Pies on by : Daphne

Ingredients:

3 cups diced rhubarb1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries1 pinch salt1/8 tsp ground nutmeg1/2 tsp lemon juice1 1/3 cups white sugar1/3 cup all-purpose flour1 double crust ready-to-use pie crust2 tbs butter, cut up1 tbs white sugar

Instructions:

Preheat an oven to 425F (220C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
Toss the rhubarb and blueberries in a bowl with the salt, nutmeg, lemon juice, 1 1/3 cup sugar, and flour until evenly mixed. Pour into the pie shell and dot with butter. Cover the filled crust with the top crust and flute the edges. Cut a few decorative steam vents in the top crust. Sprinkle the crust with 1 tablespoon of sugar; cover the fluted edges with aluminum foil to prevent excessive browning. Place the pie tin on the prepared baking sheet.
Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes; reduce the heat to 350F (175C) and bake 35 minutes longer. Remove the foil and continue baking until the crust is golden and juice is bubbling through the slits, about 15 minutes more. Cool completely before serving.
