You will never have soggy crusts again if you make your pie like this. You can make this and freeze it for using later. UPDATE: I just finished doing it in the microwave, so much easier than standing over a pot stirring. It took about 15 minutes, stirring after the first 5 min and every couple minutes until thick and clear looking. I added the cornstarch mixture after the first 5 minutes.

Nutrition
  • 4 cups blueberries (fresh or frozen)

  • 14 cup water

  1. In a heavy saucepan mix together blueberries, sugar and lemon juice.
