  • Freezing Unbaked Pies:
  • Make the pie and then freeze it raw. Wrap the top of the pie with clear plastic wrap, then foil paper (this will prevent foil from sticking to pie crust when you remove it). Put the pie in a freezer bag; remove as much air as possible.
  • To cook, remove foil paper and plastic wrap. Cook frozen pie in oven preheated to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) until the fruit is bubbling and the crust is golden, about 1 hour 20 minutes. It takes longer than a fresh pie.
  • Editor's Note:
  • Saskatoon berries may be called serviceberries in some markets.

This recipe is a great starting point. Because of the "or as needed" listed with the berries I was leery and added another cup and a half, which was perfect (total 6 1/2 cups). I've never used tapioca before, so I used 2tbsp cornstarch mixed with the lemon juice, and then I cooked the whole thing to thicken it. Once cooled, I filled the pie. I omitted the butter, and used a whole egg to brush the top (also sprinked the sugar on right away) I baked it for 50 mins and it was perfect! Delicious.
