Recipe: Wild Elderberry Mini Pies

Written by

Pie-A-Day #22

This Saturday on Good Food, Hank Shaw – author of Hunt, Gather, Cook and blogger behind the delightful Hunter, Angler, Gardener, Cook – describes foraging for wild elderberries which are dead ripe in California right now. To make a pie with elderberries is no simple task. He describes some of the berries as “the size of an o on a printed page.” Fortunately, these “mini” pies are made in ramekins so you won’t have to spend a week foraging to fill an entire 9-inch pie pan with teeny tiny berries.

Hanks says this recipes works for any berry that isn’t too seedy…blueberries, huckleberries, blackberries, raspberries, thimbleberries, elderberries, etc. So if you aren’t up for a foraging adventure you can fill these little dough-lined ramekins with blueberries and be just as satisfied.
