Blackberry Pie Recipe

Friday, September 4, 2015
This Blackberry Pie with freshly picked berries from our garden in season makes the ultimate best berry pie.

No kidding I have such fond memories of this pie as a child and always made it during the season in memory of my mom we had an abundance of berries in our backyard growing and all kinds.

Red raspberries, boysenberries, and blackberries were always a staple when in season and Mom would make pies, jam, and muffins.

The years passed quickly and memories of those delicious treats are etched in my mind forever and I am so glad I watched intently as she baked and cooked.

Here is an easy recipe for fresh blackberry pie in our printable recipe card at the end of this post.

Kinds of Berries To Choose for Pies

  • Blackberries: a dark purple berry usually with a white core and much larger than a red raspberry in size great for jams and pie
  • Raspberries: these are very vibrant with bright red in color, have a delightful sweet taste, and are fragile in texture plus my personal favorite
  • Boysenberries: these berries are hybrid varieties combining loganberries, dewberries, raspberries, and blackberries and are even larger than blackberries
  • Blueberries: these are the easiest to find in most supermarkets all year long and are sweet with a tangy taste, very dark blue in color with a juicy texture
