Bumbleberry Pie is a charming name for a pie with mixed fruit and berries in it.
This is a recipe we recieved from our CSA last wk. Pretty tasty! We had these ingredients in our boxes this wk, but Farmer Judy said that she made one with blueberries and cut up plums. Some recipes use strawberries or gooseberries. The actual ingredients and proportions aren't very important, it's that you use 5 cups total of assorted fruits and berries. Farmer Judy also recommends the fruit portion of this recipe to be used in a cobbler recipe!

2-9" unbaked pie crusts

1 1/3 c. sugar

1/2 c. flour

2 c. thinly sliced apples

1 c. blackberries

1 c. rhubarb, cut in 1' pieces

1 c. raspberries

Preheat oven 350 degrees.

Stir flour and sugar together in large bowl. Add fruit, toss together, turn into the pie shell. Cover with pastry top, trim, seal edges. Cut vents in top. Bake for approx. 45 minutes, until browned and the apples are cooked--bottom line: watch to see that the juices are boiling so that the filling thickens.)

Note: i found that i had to cook it for almost an 1 and half before the juices started flowing and the pastry browned. Just keep a good eye on it!!
