    I just made the world's best blueberry pie. Mmmm. Tastes like fresh blueberries and cream.

    If anyone is interested, I will share the recipe but everyone has to promise to keep the original recipe name which has been passed down since who knows when.

    Here it is! (Harriet is no relation, but the name of the pie was so absurd that it stuck in our family circle.)

    "Harriet Bepler's Mystery Chef Blueberry Pie"

    4 cups fresh blueberries
    1/2 cup sugar
    2 tablespoons cornstarch
    1/4 teaspoon grated lemon rind (or 2 Tbsp lemon juice)
    1 cup heavy cream
    1 9-inch baked pie shell (I use a graham cracker crust)

    Mash 1 cup of the blueberries. In a 2-quart saucepan stir together the sugar and cornstarch. Gradually stir in the water until smooth. Stir in the mashed blueberries and the lemon rind. Over medium heat, stirring constantly, cook until thickened and boiling and boil 1 minute. Turn into a bowl; cover with wax paper; cool. Fold in the remaining blueberries. Whip cream until double in volume; spread 1 1/2 cups of it over the bottom and up the sides of the pastry shell. Fill with the blueberry mixture. Garnish with the remaining 1/2 cup whipped cream. Chill until set--about three hours.
