In vacation mode now…well, as much as I ever am. Two weeks of sailing in Maine while I edit the upcoming book (#2 in the Island Mystery Series) and research Book 3. Going back to Matinicus, over to Criehaven and later on to the infamous Casco Bay island of Malaga. More on this next time.
Oh, and I’m once again cooking up a storm. Nice to have time to do that again. Spent an hour or so picking blueberries in the hills above Bucks Harbor (off Eggemoggin Reach) and making my friend Marty’s Double Berry Pie—all while thinking hard about the “baddies” I’m dreaming up for Book 3. Here’s the recipe. Enjoy.
Marty’s Double Berry Pie
Prepared Graham Cracker Crust
½ C. sugar
2 TBS. cornstarch
2 TBS. water
3 Pints Blueberries
Mix the first four ingredients with 1 ½ pints of the blueberries. Heat to boiling over medium heat, stirring occasionally, then boil 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
Remove from heat and gently stir in remaining berries.
Spoon into crust and chill at least 3 hours.
Top with whipped cream.
