rather messy or, haste makes waste
Well, not waste, exactly.
I had a bag of Wyman's wild blueberries in the freezer for too long and thought I'd make a pie. I added some cranberries to round it out and had it on the stove to cool.
And then it came to me that I hadn't put in any thickener, oh dear. I make pies so rarely - why, for two people? And when I do make them it's usually apple, and I don't use a thickener in apple pie.
It tastes very good. It's SO juicy. When the crust gives out, we can just eat the insides. No, it won't get wasted.
* my brother told me this story - a customer of his was in Maine, picking these tiny wild blueberries with her dog along. I'm sure you can guess it; her bucket was feeling rather light - the dog had eaten all the berries!
