What could be more country than some blueberry pocket pies cooling on the windowsill? ~
Eventually our cooks would have looked out on the little Anglican church, built by the men in the growing community.
My method won't be much different from our early bakers. The pastry is made from scratch and the blueberries came from a local, organic farm. A little extra flour added to the berries makes the filling less runny and easier to take to the fields. A sprinkle of sugar on top would certainly have been a luxury 200 years ago.
I needed a break from my own pioneer style work today. I've been busy breaking up and hauling away a huge old stump. It has finally rotted enough for me to start the next phase of the back yard reno. I've scoured the property for rocks to begin terracing the hill beside the patio. ~
I wouldn't mind having that good, old horse to help me with my work, right about now!
