Ski,

What do you use for pie filling thickener?  Flour?  Tapioca?  Corn starch?

Some of each?

Getting that part of the recipe correct is the art of berry/fruit pies, in my opinion, because it varies with ingredients, ripeness, and standing time.

Tom

tapioca or cornstarch.
in those three above I used cornstarch.
(tapioca powder is dirt cheap at the Asian market.)

Really miss the ones my mother would make. That and jam. Of course back then there were no permits needed to access private timber lands. The last one I had I was able to sweet talk Clarks Restaurant (US Hwy 101 south of Cosmopolis) into selling me. But they too were and are finding it hard to get berries thanks to the permit requirements. And if you've never tried Clarks, they make their own soft ice cream. Excellent old fashioned milk shakes!

Well, gee can I join in on this thread?  clown.gif   Now, from the NW, I don't usually refer to "pizza" as "pie".  (Another whole argument about the best pizza.  rolleyes.gif )  Anyway, inspired by NYC, I thought, " uhh.gif  Hmm, I can make this."  And I did...Even Better!

In the style of pie/focaccia/pizza I tried my hand at artichoke pizza pie. The hack was Trader Joe's pizza dough; my own garlic béchamel with half/half and just a scant pinch of nutmeg; Grocery Outlet artichokes (best price); TJ's fresh mozzarella; and a handful of spinach/arugula mix.   It's pie, man!

My sister sent over an ice chest full of Italian prunes, which are getting ripe now, and asked for a pie. I still have plenty of Italian prunes left, but I ran out of shortening!

Recipe here, although she wanted sugar-free, and since I couldn't find sugar free orange marmalade, I used fresh grated orange peel instead. We'll see how it worked after they cool down.

<edit 092017 10:15 PDT> better with the marmalade. the fresh-grated orange rind was a bit on the "raw" side. didn't have the same character as with the marmalade.
