Blueberry pie - simply divine!

My mom arrived on Thursday with a load of fruit. She bought about 20kg's of guavas and 1 kg of blueberries. The guavas are going to be processed into jam and guava butter, but the blueberries went into a pie. There is nothing like a pie for dessert to conjure up warm homely feelings.



I used this recipe for my pie. It called for 6 cups of blueberries. The hint of lemon zest added the most amazing taste to the pie. We had a dinner guest this night and even he, who is a very cool calm and collected teen, licked his chops and said "Wow" - high praise from him indeed!



With the one cup left over, I made a delicious smoothie with our strawberries and a banana and yoghurt.
