Stephanie Ross won this week’s Wilderness Farms Blackberry Recipe Contest with her entry for Blackberry Pie.  I am not much of a pastry chef, so I let Grandma Jo use this recipe to bake a delicious blackberry pie.  I happened to call up as  Merrell and Jo were finishing the last two pieces and heard nothing but nummy sounds.  Bake up and enjoy this recipe.


1/4 cup of tapioca pearls (soak as indicated for pie filling preperation)

1/2 tsp Augostura bitters

1/2 tsp Almond Extract

1 1/2 cup sugar

6 cups fresh (or frozen if necessary) blackberries.

Mix ingredients with the blackberries last to insure a consistent mixture.

Crust:  This recipe is for 2 9″pie crusts.

2 cups flour

1 tsp salt

1 cup shortening

1/4 cup milk

Mix, ball and refrigerate ingredients for 20 min.

Roll out crust, add the filling and bake at 400 for 45 minutes.
