Recipe by William (Uncle Bill) Anatooskin
This is an excellent filling recipe and expecially when the blueberries are fresh.
- 3 cups blueberries (fresh or frozen)
- 1 1⁄2 cups granulated sugar
- 1⁄2 cup tapioca starch (cornstarch can also be used)
Directions See How It's Made
- If you are using frozen blueberries, thaw before using.
- In a mixing bowl, mix together sugar and tapioca starch until well mixed.
- Reserve 1/2 cup of mixture to be used for adding to the base of the pastry.
- Add remaining sugar mixture to the blueberries and carefully mix well to coat berries.
- Let mixture sit for about 5 minutes before using.
