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.

wow this worked well I used 1/4 cup corn starch and 2/3 cup sugar...and guess what? 1 cup really super finely shredded zucchini it sounds crazy but it picks up the blueberry flavor and color...the kids will NEVER know...it stretches the recipe out a bit and uses up some of summers harvest highly recommended as is (and with the sneaky veggie option)
- 4 cups blueberries (fresh or frozen)
- 2⁄3-1 cup sugar (I use 2/3 cup as we don't like our pies too sweet)
- 1⁄4 cup lemon juice
- 1⁄4-1⁄3 cup cornstarch (depending on how thick you like your filling)
- 1⁄4 cup water
