Summertime Pies: Eating Seasonal Fruit

Summer is among us, time to put away those rich and heavy desserts, and lighten up a bit with seasonal pies.

In the Hamptons there are places where you can pick your own fruit, so why not! Or you can just pick up a bushel from the local farm stand.

Here are my favorite summertime pies:

Blueberry, Raspberry and Strawberry Pie

1. Take a pint of all three berries and put them into a bowl, wash with cold water and squeeze fresh lemon juice on them and refrigerate.

2. Take an already made pie shell and brush it with butter and brown sugar.

3. Make the syrup to go with the berries, take 100 percent pure Agave Nectar, cinnamon, vanilla, a pinch of ground cloves, and nutmeg, with Raspberry liquor, mint, and water.

4. Stir until it is a thick consistency.

5. Pour the syrup into the berry mixture

6. Pour the berry mixture into the pie shell and bake for 25 min. until berries are tender and bubbly.

You can substitute peaches, nectarines, apricots, for berry mixture.

Cheers to a healthy sweet tooth!
