The bee hives were removed Sunday May 9.  We are now praying for rain since it has been more than 3 weeks since we've had a soaking rain.  We have already "drip" irrigated twice to alleviate the situation.  But real rain is dramatically different.  You've probably seen the difference in your own garden.  When it rains, everything greens up.
The start of blueberry season can be as early as June 1 and as late as June 13 weather depending.

Hello blueberry lovers,

This time of year you can buy fresh cranberries and make our favorite recipe for Thanksgiving, Christmas and other celebrations.

Diane regularly makes a double batch, 1/2 for the pie and 1/2 for ice cream topping.  If you aren't good at making pie crust, not to worry.  Just use the filling slightly warm on ice cream (I had 2 helpings tonight!)

Here is the recipe.  Since you make the filling on the stove top you can adjust the sugar as desired.

Crimson Pie
Double crust pastry for 9" pie (see Ozark pie for crust recipe on our recipe page; click Gluten Free for a GF options)

In heavy sauce pan stir together:
2 c. sugar
3 T. cornstarch
3 c. cranberries (fresh or thawed)
1/2 seedless orange with peel, chopped in food processor
3 c. blueberries, fresh or still frozen-I do not add blueberries until after cooking the other ingredients; I want the cranberries to burst  and the blueberries to remain intact.

Stir well before heating.  Bring all ingredients except the blueberries to boil stirring well.  Boil for 3 minutes stirring constantly.  Add blueberries and stir.  Cool before pouring into a deep 9" pie dish lined with unbaked pastry.  Cover with top crust; crimp edges; cut vents.  Bake at 400 for about 20-25 minutes or until browned.  We put a pizza pan under the pie while baking to catch the overflow.  Let pie cool before cutting or it will run.

Notes.  Cranberries are  generally available only around Thanksgiving & Christmas.  We buy them & freeze them for this pie.
You may substitute strawberries for the cranberries and reduce the sugar to 1 1/2 C or less.

Our blueberry varieties ripen in the following order:
Duke (sweet, non acidic, flavor improves with chilling)
BlueJay (a sweet, firm berry that cooks well)
Patriot (a full flavor berry that tastes somewhat like Darrow)
BlueRay (first picks are full flavored; as they have more time to ripen they are some of the sweetest in the patch)
BlueCrop (good all around berry)
Darrow (an extremely full flavored berry with a high amount of acidity until the end of the season; ripens very gradually; it is picked from about week 2 through the end of the season)
Brigitta (a late but sweet berry--most late berries are more acidic)
Late Blue & Coville (very tart, limited quantities)
